International Series of Monographs in Chemical Engineering, Volume 10: Principles of Powder Mechanics: Essays on the Packing and Flow of Powders and Bulk Solids covers topics on packings; elementary statics; measurement of powder properties; flow patterns and segregation; and kinematics.

Frank Scott, Bora Laskin, W.P.M. Kennedy, John Willis and Edward Blake are among the better known figures whose thinking and writing about law are featured in this collection. But this compilation of the most important essays by a pioneer in Canadian legal history brings to light many other lesser known figures as well, whose writings covered a wide range of topics, from estoppel to the British North America Act to the purpose of legal education. Written over more than two decades, and covering the immediate post-Confederation period to the 1960s, these essays reveal a distinctive Canadian tradition of thinking about the nature and functions of law, one which Risk clearly takes pride in and urges us to celebrate.
