This book provides comprehensive guidance on maintaining old waterfront structures, particularly gravity walls constructed with stone masonry, brick, blocks or mass concrete. It will be valuable for all engineers responsible for such structures.

Marvin Bell used to teach at the University of Iowa; listening to him read from this book is one of my most striking memories of the many poets I went to see during my time there.

Wry, complicated, and never exactly what he seems, The Dead Man is an unreliable narrator of the first water.
