STRATEGIC MATERIALS: In Hemisphere Defense

Email this review


Straight statistical presentation of the strategic or critical materials, their sources, uses, both civilian and military, the substitutes, the degree of shortage, the stock available. Rubber and tin lead the list; then steel, and its components, aluminum, platinum and allied metals; quinine, iodine, textiles,oil, chemicals, fat, and so on. Brief survey of what Latin America can provide. At the close, the importance of salvage is stressed.
