 A true Renaissance man, Fu Hua Chen was educated in both China and the UnitedStates. Returning to his homeland to contribute to its struggle against Japaneseattrition, he was chief engineer on the Burma Road. That artery held together thevictorious Allied campaign to end World War II on the Asian mainland.After the Tibet Highway, the Ho Chi Minh Trail, and other large China projects,Dr. Chen brought his family to the U.S. to build a better life. Successful in that, hethen devoted his remaining years to returning to his community, his society, and hisprofession some of the benefits American life had provided for him.Acknowledged as the world’s authority on expansive soils, Dr. Chen publishedbooks on that and other aspects of geotechnical engineering, and a riveting autobi-ography. He wanted the top rung of his career ladder to be his guide for constructorsand consultants to demystify soils and foundation engineering. It is a plain-talk effortto help builders understand and deal with that complex facet so vital to construction.With the publication of this book, Dr. Chen has achieved that goal, to top off amonumental career that ended peacefully among his family in his 87th year.
