J.D. Eshelby's work shaped the fields of defect mechanics and micromechanics of inhomogeneous solids for fifty years, providing the basis for quantitative analysis of the controlling mechanisms of plastic deformation and fracture. This volume presents the Collected Works of Eshelby unabridged, with forewords by D.M. Barnett (Stanford Univ.), B. Bilby (Sheffield), J.R. Rice (Harvard Univ.), A. Seeger (Stuttgart), and J.R. Willis (Cambridge Univ.) on the impact of Eshelby's work on theirs.

From the reviews:
"The book under review is a collection of all works of John Douglas Eshelby (1916-1981). It contains his 57 papers as well as his lectures on the elastic energy-momentum tensor ... . The volume contains also short biographical data of Eshelby ... as well as full list of Eshelby's publications and acknowledgements. The book was published very carefully. It will be a very good source to the work of Eshelby." (Roman Murawski, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1099 (1), 2007)
