We shall describe the advances that took place during the 150 years after Newton when the laws of motion were reformulated using more powerful techniques and ideas developed by some of the giants of mathematical physics: people such as Euler, Lagrange, Hamilton and Jacobi.

A rigorous theoretical and mathematical description of the motion of spinning bodies and practical applications where their gyroscopic properties are used. The book goes into great detail on the theory, design and implementation of applications.
by J. Bruce Brackenridge - University of California Press
The book clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion. The author sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective.

The book presents the principles of elementary dynamics, and explains the meaning of the physical quantities involved, partly by definition and description, but mainly by worked examples in which formulae have been avoided as far as possible.

Set of lecture notes for an upper-division classical dynamics course: oscillations, Keplerian orbits, two-body scattering, rotation of rigid bodies in three dimensions, Lagrangian mechanics, Hamiltonian mechanics, and coupled oscillations.
