The author has gathered information about all aspects of the industry and produced a concise review which covers everything from history and origins to future prospects. Written in six parts the book begins with a look at the scale and significance of the industry and goes on to illustrate the production process from mineralogy to production trends. Part three examines uses and consumption while part four looks at the industry organisation and structure including a study of trading patterns and arrangements. The fifth part surveys future prospects and the effect of pressing environmental concerns on market trends. The final part is an appendix of useful information and statistics.
