For the past four years (1965-68) the New England Nuclear Corp (a supplier of Mossbauer sources) has sponsored a Mossbauer-Effect Methodology Symposium held prior to the annual meeting of the American Physical Society. The present volume, edited by Irwin Gruverman of New England Nuclear, contains proceedings of the third symposium held in New York, in January, 1967. The volume is composed of two sections, the larger being a collection of applications of Mossbauer spectroscopy in the area of material sciences; the second section is devoted to the methodology of several relatively recently developed Mossbauer nuclides. The level of the articles is generally introductory and for the most part the discussions are accessible to nonspecialists.
