Handbook of Pulp & Paper Terminology, 2nd edition

With the continuous implementation of new technology, the lexicon of the pulp and paper industry becomes ever more complicated. Now more than ever before, a dictionary to define pulp and paper technological terms is a virtual necessity for newly employed individuals in the mills or for consultants and vendors who deal with the industry. Angus Wilde Publications Inc., based in Vancouver, BC, has just released the updated and expanded Second Edition of the
“Handbook of Pulp & Paper Terminology”. Written and compiled by Gary A. Smook, this handy reference contains over 9000 entries, far more coverage than other available dictionaries. The book is organized into 26 specialized glossaries, thus enabling the reader to concentrate on a specific area of interest. An additional chapter is provided for deciphering abbreviations and acronyms. Tying everything together is a complete alphabetical index with double entries for compound terminology. Designed as a companion volume to the “Handbook for Pulp & Paper Technologists”, this dictionary admirably serves the needs of pulp and paper mill engineers,
technologists, non-technical managers, suppliers, consultants, students and analysts. It offers a comprehensive source of information to anyone who reads, writes or converses in the vernacular of the pulp, paper or converting industries. Technical, research, governmental and public libraries will want this handbook on their shelves as an invaluable reference to a major industry. Every serious technologist in our industry should have a copy. (2001, 447 pp)
