From the reviews:
"The volume Nonlocal continuum field theories concentrates on the formulation of nonlocal balance and constitutive equations in the context of mechanics, but also of electromagnetic theory. ... it is clear that Eringen's latest book is a fascinating and stimulating one that should have a dedicated place on the shelf of every researcher in physics, mechanics or materials science." (Technische Mechanik, Vol. 25 (1), 2005)
"This book is ... an organized presentation of the numerous successful achievements of its author in the nonlocal theories of elasticity, fluid mechanics and electromagnetism ... . With the large spectrum of problems approached and the many questions it still raises on the foundations of continuum physics, it clearly belongs to the shelves of all scholars in generalized continuum mechanics and all those interested in further developments bridging different scales of apprehending the physical world." (Gerard A. Maugin, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2003 m)
"This interesting book covers a gap in the literature on continuum field theories. It contains and updates the own research of the author and his collaborators for almost the last forty years. ... The purpose of the book is to present a unified approach to the formulations of nonlocal field theories ... . Every chapter ends with an interesting collection of problems."
