In 1985, the Geological Society published Aggregates as the first volume in its Engineering Geology Special Publication series. It met with immediate acclaim, being awarded the Brewis Trophy by SAGA in 1986 and drawing the following review from the Canadian Geotechnical Journal in 1988: This book is in general a well-researched, informative and useful guide to the location, sampling and testing of aggregates. If your work involves the use of aggregates, buy this book and read no further; this volume will be an essential and valuable reference that you will use for many years. In 1989, the working party whose work had resulted in the publication of Aggregates was reconvened to revise, update and extend their report. Each chapter was reviewed by independent referees. The second and greatly improved edition, published in 1993 and reprinted in 1998, represented the distillation of a vast body of knowledge and experience held not only by the members of the working party, but also by many international experts, scientists and engineers who contributed as reviewers, referees and corresponding authors.
