Description

More than 850 individuals partly forgotten by name, but sometimes found in historical writings, together with many well known or recently deceased persons are presented in terms of bio-data, short career highlights, and main advances made to the profession with a short biography of the main writings. If available, a portrait is also included. Hydraulicians in Europe, Volume 2 is a continuation of the first volume, both in outline and in coverage and pagination. Volumes 1 and 2 include more than 1500 biographies.

Reviews

Professor Hager should be complemented for his scholarly masterpiece. This monumental compendium of single-page bio-sketches highlights past European contributions in hydraulics. These brief portraits and professional career summaries bring vibrant life to scientists and engineers known through formulas, methods and procedures. This monograph not only commemorates past contributions, it will inspire future generations to pursue deeply-rooted multi-disciplinary research at the international level.

Prof. Pierre Julien, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, USA

Hydraulicians in Europe 1800-2000 by Willi H. Hager published by IAHR in 2003 was the first volume of a monumental task undertaken by the author. In this second volume of the same format as its predecessor Prof. Hager mainly fills in gaps of volume 1 adding also biographies of more recently deceased scientists and engineers in the field of hydraulic engineering. Together volumes 1 and 2 are not only evidence of the author's erudition and enthusiasm but above all a very valuable and lasting reference.

Emeritus Professor P. Novak, School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Aims & Scope
An important function of any large international organisation representing the research, educational and practical components of its wide and varied membership is to disseminate the best elements of its discipline through learned works, specialised research publications and timely reviews. IAHR is particularly well-served in this regard by its flagship journals and the extensive and wide body of substantive historical and reflective books that have been published through its auspices over the years. The IAHR Book Series is an initiative of IAHR, in partnership with CRC Press/Balkema-Taylor & Francis Group, aimed at presenting the state-of-the-art in themes relating to all areas of hydro-environment engineering and research.
The Book Series will assist researchers and professionals working in research and practice by bridging the knowledge gap and by improving knowledge transfer among groups involved in research, education and development. This Book Series includes Design Manuals and Monographs. The Design Manuals contain practical works, theory applied to practice based on multi-authors' work; the Monographs cover reference works, theoretical and state of the art works.
