The manuscript of the book Mechanical
Spectroscopy was sent to Chapman & Hall in the UK in 1996. Then Chapman & Hall
went bankrupt. This company was taken over by Thomson Science, also in the UK. Then
Thomson Science went bankrupt as well. Finally, Kluwer Academic Publishers from the
Netherlands bought the rights for the publication list of Thomson Science.
To make this situation worse, the manuscript
of Mechanical Spectroscopy, including original figures and 2 additional hard copies, was
lost by Thomson Science. This means that our manuscript never arrived at Kluwer Academic
Publishers, who has the rights for the publication of the book.
The recovery process of the book is in
progress. Mechanical Spectroscopy is scheduled to be published in the first part of 2001.
The contents of the book sent for publication
to Chapman & Hall in the UK is given here.
The book will be available from Kluwer Academic Publishers.
