About this Item: London: Abelard-Schuman, First Edition., 1969. Octavo, black boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 176 pp. Neat former-owner bookplate; otherwise, Fine, in a Very Good, mylar protected dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. From dust jacket: .incidents such as the above abound in the literature on thunderbolts. This terrifying phenomenon, which can fall from a clear sky or enter an enclosed room, has mystified man from classical times onward. Citing examples of Flying Saucer sightings, the activities of poltergeists, and reports of death by spontaneous combustion, the authors demonstratge the strange similarities between these apparently inexplicable phenomena and the bahviour of thunderbolts. From a comprehensive study of the case histories of ball lightning we see how, even in the most bizarre instances, certain physical properties common to most cases can be deduced. The authors examine all the scientific theories that have been advanced to account for the enormous energy output of thunderbolts, and emphasize that despite the theories no manmade thunderbolt has yet been produced in the laboratory. When this can be done, the possibilities for the use of large synthetic thunderbolts as weapons of war will be almost unlimited. But of perhaps greater signficance for mankind is the application of plasma physicas to peaceful uses, for instance, as a means of producing cheap and virtually boundless energy. The science and superstition of ball lightning will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in one of the weirdest and least known of natural phenomena.
