When we think of energetics, inevitably we think of eplosives, propellants, firecrackers, gunpowder and China, since that is where gunpowder was first invented. It is therefore appropriate that any study of the science of energetics begin with an examination of the development of energetics in China.
This book was written as part of a planned six volume series on Energetics Science and Technology. The motivation for this series is to provide a comprehensive collection of information on this critical technology and identify the energetic materials research being conducted across the globe.
