Thank heavens for Jens Wittenburg, of the University of Karlsruhe in Germany. Anyone who's been laboring for years over equation after equation will want to give him a great big hug. It is common practice to develop equations for each system separately and to consider the labor necessary for deriving all of these as inevitable. Not so, says the author. Here, he takes it upon himself to describe in detail a formalism which substantially simplifies these tasks.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This is the second edition of a book published thirty years ago ... . The first edition had a success and has been used as a textbook in advanced courses of analytical mechanics. The book has six chapters. ... This book can be used by mechanical engineers, scientists and graduate students." (Irina Alexandrovna Bolgrabskaya, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1131 (9), 2008)

"This book is the second edition of the 1977 Dynamics of Systems of Rigid Bodies ... . This text is a classical and complete book on rigid multibody dynamics. ... The book is precise in notation and clear in presentation. ... this classical textbook in multibody dynamics is an excellent reference, containing valuable material for graduate students and researchers. ... I believe that the book can easily be used as a text for a graduate course on the dynamics of rigid multibody systems." (Arend L. Schwab, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, October, 2008)
