The manuscript of the book 'Mechanical
Spectroscopy' was submitted for the publication to Chapman & Hall in the UK in 1996. The Chapman & Hall
Publishing company went bankrupt. This company was taken over by Thomson Science in the UK. Then
Thomson Science went bankrupt as well. Finally, Kluwer Academic Publishers, from the
Netherlands, bought the rights for the publication of all the books accepted for publication by Thomson Science.
To make this situation worse, the first and second copy of the manuscript
'Mechanical Spectroscopy', including all original figures, graphs and tables and two additional hard copies, were
lost by Thomson Science in the UK. This means that the original manuscript did not arrived to Kluwer Academic
Publishers. The Kluwer Academic Publishers has the rights for the publication of the book.
The recovery process of the manuscript of Mechanical Spectroscopy book is in
progress. The book on Mechanical Spectroscopy is scheduled for publication in 2001.
The contents of the book submitted for the publication
to Chapman & Hall in the UK is here.
It is expected that the book 'Mechanical Spectroscopy' will be published by Kluwer Academic Publishers.
