Review:

"Professor Callaway...has made important contributions over a wide area of solid state physics and the book reflects his deep understanding of his subject....Without a doubt, this is a very valuable addition to the literature which I found very stimulating to read. The problems at the end of each chapter are helpful in assessing one's grasp of the material as one goes along."
