The format used here, which differs from that usually found in books on ionic polymerization, is the result of our intention of selecting problems of a general nature and preferring to examine the reactivity and the stereospecificity of active sites separately rather than jointly. It was also decided that a general summary should be given rather than detailed conclusions for each chapter. In such an undertaking we considered it necessary, together with the points already mentioned, to consider certain facts which have, for one reason or another, been omitted from the basic material.
