From the reviews of the first edition:
"This book is published in the `Engineering Materials' series intended to provide materials to scientists and engineers in research and development with topical information on structure, properties, manufacturing, and applications. ... Although the book is a conference/workshop proceeding, the lectures are thoughtfully re-written with some additional contributions and well produced to give the book a longer shelf life. ... It will ... serve as a valuable reference because it provides a snapshot of the current status ... ." (N. Sanjeeva Murthy, Polymer News, Vol. 27 (11), 2002)
"The book under review is composed of lectures presented at the Merseburg Discussion Conference with several additional contributions ... . the present book is definitely a reference book. This reviewer sees to different audiences to which the book will be of interest - practical engineers designing and researching structures using polymeric materials, and theoreticians working in fracture mechanics. ... The quality of publication is good ... . Deformation and Fracture Behavior of Polymers is recommended to all large technical libraries." (GI Barenblatt, Applied Mechanics Reviews, Vol. 56 (1), 2003)
"The book describes recent progress in basic and applied research into the deformation and fracture behaviour of polymers, blends, copolymers, composites and biocompatible materials. ... Taking into account recent trends in this field, the contribution of a large number of specialists from Germany, Austria, Poland and Czechia collected in one volume can be very useful for further developments and information, thus stimulating the theoretical activity in different branches of mechanics, and especially in fracture and damage analysis, in plasticity, viscoplasticity, etc." (M. Misicu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 978, 2002)
