Designed to provide a more mature, in-depth treatment of mechanics at the undergraduate level, Shames offers continuity, with a smooth transition to, more advanced courses. Students are encouraged to work problems from first principles - to minimise excessive mapping from examples and to discourage rote learning of specific methodologies for problem solving.

A revision of a highly-respected and well-known text for courses in Engineering Mechanics. Shames' approach to the subject, emphasizing fundamental principles instead of "cookbook" problem-solving, has been refined to make it more accessible to students. Also, there are over 500 new problems which have been rigorously checked for accuracy.From the Back Cover:
This edition of the highly respected and well-known book for Engineering Mechanics focuses on developing a solid understanding of basic principles rather than rote learning of specific methodologies. It covers fundamental principles instead of “cookbook” problem–solving, and has been refined to make it more readable. It includes over 500 new problems rigorously checked for accuracy. Topics covered include kinematics of a particle, particle dynamics, energy methods for particles, methods of momentum for particles, kinematics of rigid bodies, kinetics of plane motion of rigid bodies, energy and impulse-momentum methods for rigid bodies, dynamics of general rigid-body motion, and vibrations.
