The study of Mechanics as presented in this volume is founded upon a course in mathematics extending through the Calculus. It is assumed, moreover, that the student has already become familiar with the fundamental ideas of force, energy, and work through such preliminary courses as are included in textbooks on General Physics.

The reader is taken on a tour through time and space. Starting from the basic axioms formulated by Newton and Einstein, the theory of motion at both the everyday and the highly relativistic level is developed without the need of prior knowledge.
by Roy McWeeny - Learning Development Institute
From these simple ideas about mass and motion, and a few experiments that anyone can do, we can lay the foundations of Physics: they are expressed mathematically in the 'laws of motion', which form the starting point for the Physical Sciences.
by Michael Cohen - University of Pennsylvania
This is an introduction to Classical Mechanics, which many students may find useful as a supplementary resource. Cohen emphasizes basic concepts, such as force and permissible frames of reference, which frequently are dealt with hastily.
by Isaac Todhunter - Macmillan and co
The work forms an elementary treatise on demonstrative mechanics. The author provides an introduction to the study of applied as well as of theoretical Mechanics. Great care was taken to assume the smallest possible knowledge of pure mathematics.
