With the publication of the 10
th
edition of 
The Making, Shaping and Treating ofSteel 
in 1985, theAssociation of Iron and Steel Engineers assumed total responsibility for the future of this presti-gious document from the U.S. Steel Corporation. In 1998, the Association of Iron and SteelEngineers transferred all rights to
The Making, Shaping and Treating of Steel 
to The AISE SteelFoundation. Readers of the 11
th
edition will obviously note the most dramatic change in technol-ogy and style of presentation since the book’s inception in 1919.In 1995, The AISE Steel Foundation formed an MSTS Steering Committee to oversee the creationof the 11
th
edition, and this committee looked out at a vastly different steel industry than that of the 10
th
edition. Hence, a new publication concept was deemed necessary, and this concept had to be consistent with the massive changes in steel industry economics that had occurred during the1980s and early 1990s. These changes were occasioned by restructuring, downsizing, and whole-sale implementation of new and improved technology. In turn, these changes produced major increases in labor productivity, huge reductions in energy consumption, and vastly improved yields. Concomitant with these improvements, the steel marketplace saw the introduction of a hostof new and improved products.Given the backdrop of the industry’s transformation, the Steering Committee deemed a revision tothe 10
th
edition in its current format to be impractical, and therefore decided the 11
th
edition would  be a series of separate volumes dealing with specific subjects. These initial volumes, along withtheir scheduled publication dates, are:
 Ironmaking Volume
(1999)
Steelmaking and Refining Volume
(1998)
Casting Volume
(2000)
 Flat Products Volume
(2001)
 Long Products Volume
(2002)The separate volume concept was implemented by selecting Volume Chairpersons who were rec-ognized as world leaders in their respective fields of technology. These leaders, in turn, recruited a team of top-notch authors to create the individual chapters. The leaders and expert auhors, manywith backgrounds in the Association of Iron and Steel Engineers and the Iron and Steel Society,came from individual steel companies, the steel industry supplier base, and several universitieswith close associations with the steel industries. Thus, for the first time, the MSTS represents a broad and diverse view of steel technology as seen from various vantage points within industryand academe.

Despite all the changes to be found in the 11
th
edition, the MSTS Steering Committee has held onto certain traditions. One such tradition has been to provide to a wide audience (or readership)within the steel industry a basic reference containing the current practices and latest technologyused in the making, shaping, and treating of steel. The primary readership targets are university stu-dents (technical knowledge), steel producers (training and technology implementation), and cus-tomers and suppliers (technical orientation and reference). As noted by the author of the 1
st
editionin 1919, “the book was written for...(those)...who are seeking self-instruction.” The 11
th
edi-tion attempts to maintain that tradition by incorporating technical information at several differentlevels of complexity and detail, thereby offering information of value to a wide-ranging readership.The
 IronmakingVolume
and the
Steelmaking and Refining Volume,
 both being published in thesame year, contain common information on physical chemistry and kinetics, refractories, industrialgases, and fuels and water to make each book self-sufficient. The
 IronmakingVolume
includesdescriptions of the newly emerging field of alternative iron production, and the
Steelmaking and  Refining Volume
includes updated information on EAF technology and secondary refining, and new information on alternatives to conventional steelmaking. The
Casting Volume
, to be published in 1999, will include new information on near-net-shape and strip casting, as well as updated infor-mation on ingot teeming and conventional continuous casting.The AISE Steel Foundation, which is dedicated to the advancement of the iron and steel industryof North America through training, publications, research, electronic resources and other related  programs of benefit to the industry, receives the benefits of all sales of this publication.In closing, the MSTS Steering Committee wants to personally thank all of the authors who havecontributed their time and expertise to make the 11
th
edition a reality.Allan M. RathboneChairman, MSTS Steering CommitteeHonorary Chairman,
