All the chapters from the previous edition have been revised and enlarged to include in most cases new fireworks formats. Four new chapters have been added to this third edition: in a new chapter, Chemistry of Fireworks Compositions, Dr Takeo Shimizu examines the use of materials and binders in the manufacturing process and how to control reactions. The chapter on Fireworks Displays, examines the evolution of displays and modern uses throughout the world. The new chapter on Gunpowder deals with its uses since ancient times to date. The legislative framework for fireworks control in Great Britain, United States, Canada and the European Union are discussed in the new Legislation chapter. In addition, this third edition includes a glossary with more than three hundred fireworks terms and numerous photographs, some from the historical archives of the Brocks Fireworks.
