This work comprises eight contributions from leading experts on the topic of the mechanical behaviour of materials. The research themes described in this special volume range from surface forces, surface energies and adhesion to the indentation and nano-indentation of solids and fracture waves in glasses to spectroscopic studies of biological cells. The result is an intriguing and informative review of this important subject area. Review from Book News Inc.: Eight of the nine invited talks are printed here, one of them on spectroscopic studies of biological cells and the others on mechanical behavior in materials. They cover near-field spectroscopic delineation of interphase boundaries for chemical mapping at the sub-micron resolution, indentation size effect and the Hall-Petch "law," boundary lubrication and adhesion of rubber from wipers to the JKR equation, the effect of surface roughness on the adhesion of elastomers to hard surfaces, contact problems at the nanometer and micrometer scales and depth sensing indentation techniques, indentation in ceramics, the effect of solid solution impurities on dislocation nucleation in a (001) molybdenum-1.5 at.% iridium single crystal, and self-sustained fracture waves in a soda-lime glass.
