MINERALS OF MIGHT by William O. Hotchkiss


Email this review


The story of the world's minerals, natural resources and their importance in the world's history, this war -- and after the war. A record of acceleration in their uses, from primitive days to the present, in domestic as well as industrial forms; of the sources of world minerals, and the distribution of them; of the development of production methods; of fuels and non-metalics; of their importance in post-war stabilization. Unfortunately, for all the assortment of information, this is presented in a manner that would appeal only to those with a peculiar age-lag, the folksy into the scientific down without the help of any really holding, contagiously interesting retainable information.
