Published by Landfall Press; Author: Eric Goodger.

This book opens by reviewing briefly the highlights in the developments of both chemical fuels and electrical systems, from their inception to the present, recognising the shift in interest from the former to the latter.

By means of abstracting the literature, both systems are examined individually and together in the forms of hybrids, and also the emergence of hydrogen-fed fuel cells, illustrating the steady rise in electrical propulsion in aviation. Surface propulsion is also included to give support.
