The Nature and Properties of Soils, 13th Edition. By N. C. Brady and R. R. Weil

The Nature and Properties of Soils, 13th Edition. By N. C. Brady and R. R. Weil Agroforestry Systems 54: 249, 2002. 2002 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. Book review The Nature and Properties of Soils, 13th Edition. By N. C. Brady and R. R. Weil; 2002; Prentice Hall, NJ; 960 p; Hard-bound; ISBN: 13016763-0; price not indicated. This book needs no introduction to any one who has studied soil science: the book (in its successive editions by Lyon, Buckman, and Brady; and Buckman and Brady; or Brady and Weil) has been around, and widely popular throughout the world, for the past five or more decades. I still retain my first copy of the book (sixth edition, by Buckman and Brady, 1960, reprinted in India in 1964), which I acquired when I was a graduate student more than 35 years ago. The very fact that a new edition of the book has been coming out once every three years during the past few years (11th edition in 1996; 12th in 1999 and now the 13th in 2002), that too when there is no dearth of soils textbooks, is ample testimony to the value and popularity of the book. Every new edition of the book is a welcome improvement over the previous one. It http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Agroforestry Systems Springer Journals
