AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY IS PRESENTED OF THE IMPORTANT LITERATURE ON SOIL AND AGGREGATE STABILIZATION WITH INORGANIC SALTS AND BASES PUBLISHED PRIOR TO 1965. IN ALL, APPROXIMATELY 70 REFERENCES OF THE 800 TO 1000 AVAILABLE HAVE BEEN REVIEWED AMONG WHICH ARE SEVERAL BIBLIOGRAPHIES PROVIDING ADDITIONAL REFERENCES. FROM THE MORE INFORMATIVE REFERENCES THE AUTHORS HAVE ATTEMPTED TO SUMMARIZE INFORMATION ON STABILIZER PROPERTIES, MECHANICS OF STABILIZATION, PROPERTIES OF THE STABILIZED SOIL, CONSTRUCTION METHODS, FIELD RESULTS AND THE USE OF SECONDARY ADDITIVES. PARTICULAR ATTENTION IS DEVOTED TO STABILIZATION WITH SODIUM CHLORIDE, CALCIUM CHLORIDES AND SODIUM HYDROXIDE WHICH ARE THE ONLY SALTS AND BASES WHICH HAD BEEN EVALUATED SUFFICIENTLY TO PERMIT DRAWING MEANINGFUL CONCLUSIONS. /AUTHOR/
