In this set of papers, the ASME Production Engineering Division presents results of its continuing efforts to provide a condensed survey of significant contributions to the understanding of materials processing, as they appear in literature. This work is intended to be of use to engineers engaged in research and practice alike. Two new contributors are welcomed to this effort: Professor G. Boothroyd, University of Massachusetts, who has agreed to take over the review of Material Removal Practice, and Professor C. H. Kahng, Michigan Technological University, who will review the literature published in the Japanese language starting with this series. Reviews of Grinding and the German Language Literature complete the set of papers presented here. The reviews of Plastic Working of Metals and Metal Cutting Analysis will appear at a later date.
