This chapter reviews the development of the recovery block approach to software fault tolerance and subsequent work based on this approach. It starts with an account of the development and implementations of the basic recovery block scheme in the early 1970s at Newcastle, and then goes on to describe work at Newcastle and elsewhere on extensions to the basic scheme, recovery in concurrent systems, and linguistic support for recovery blocks based on the use of object-oriented programming concepts.
