Dislocations are defects in the crystal structure of important engineering materials, such as metals, ceramics and semi-conductors, that strongly influence the properties of these materials.
Research on dislocations was intense when the first edition of this classic work was published in the 1960s. By incorporating later developments in subsequent editions whilst retaining a concise, accessible style, Introduction to Dislocations has become established as a key resource for students, graduates and researchers. No other book on the topic is as credible and, with this new edition, as up-to-date.
Introduction to Dislocations is widely recognized to provide the essential knowledge base required for further study, research and technological application in the field. This update brings the book's coverage, references and context in line with the latest developments to ensure it remains a core reference for all those studying and working in the field today.

'This book fits a very much needed slot as it is written at a level that is much easier to understand than the classic old texts on dislocations...and is, for that reason, ideal for both undergraduates and beginning or interdisciplinary graduate students.' --Kevin J. Hemker, Professor and Chair of Mechanical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
'One of the most striking advantages of the book is the concise and lucid text...There are many books dealing with dislocations but only one up-to-date introduction. It is warmly recommended to teachers and students in solid state sciences' --Crystallization Technology
'As we grow older, we tend to grow fatter but wiser. This is certainly the case of the 4th edition of 'Introduction to Dislocations'...the book is excellent value and there is no excuse why every student of metallurgy should not be familiar with its contents, and every researcher have it readily to hand.' --Steel TimesFrom the Publisher:
A wider range of materials has emerged since 1965, most notably in the field of electronics and micro-engineering. The principles of dislocation theory still apply but some of the detail requires further treatment.This fourth edition pct, whilst retaining the clarity and comprehensibility of the previous editions.
