The German original of this Handbook of Loss Prevention was
compiled during the course of many years' work by the engineers of
the Department for Engineering Insurances, the scientists of the
Allianz Centre for Technology and representatives of industry. It
is based on the loss experience and practical loss research studies
of- the Allianz over a period of more than five decades. The
Handbook of Loss Prevention is a supplement to the technical
literature from the field of engineering in the form of a
collective work comprising examples of damage to machinery and
technical plant and pertinent pointers on loss prevention. It hus
ranks among the recognised handbooks for engineers in the filds of
planning, design, manufacture and operation. The great interest and
wide acclaim according the German edition of this handbook by
industry in 1972 confirm the traditional aims of the Allianz in
placing loss prevention in technical plants in the foreground of
their service to clients. The English edition of the handbook under
review here enables this valuable engineering know-how to be made
available at international level, with the object of preventing
losses by the exchange of ideas and experience. The literature
references have been taken over from the German edition in
unchanged form, in order to bring to the atten- tion of
English-speaking experts a bibliography, which is little known
