REVIEWED BY OLIVIER A. BAUCHAU, Igor Sikorsky Professor of Rotorcraft, Department of Aerospace Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742.

Kane's method is a well-established approach to the formulation of the equations of motions of complex multibody mechanical systems. This method is systematic and clearly presented in the now famous book, Dynamics: Theory and Applications, by Kane and Levinson [1]. The present book, Dynamics: Theory and Application of Kane's Method, borrows material mostly from the original book of Kane and Levinson [1] and to a lesser extent, from the book, Spacecraft Dynamics, by Kane et al. [2]. New material and minor revisions contributed by Roithmayr and Hodges are distributed throughout the text. The book is a timely and welcome update of the work of Kane and Levinson, provides coverage of a broader class of...
