This two-volume work forms a comprehensive treatise on the theory and applications of electron-diffraction techniques, and has been organized under the auspices of the Electron Diffraction Commission of the International Union of Crystallography. All those embarking on research which involves the use of electron diffraction methods, including graduate students and more experienced researchers who wish to add electron diffraction to their array of research tools will find this an invaluable reference. Volume 1 contains introductory chapters and the sections on electron diffraction which are less dependent on considerations of imaging in electron microscopes. Volume 2 deals with those aspects where there is a stronger correlation of the diffraction phenomena with the electron microscope imaging.

Industry Reviews

'These specialist books will find their way into the libraries of pracitioners, who will use them as a source of references as examples, and as a means on initiating students into the wealth of detail that can be obtained from electron diffraction.' Professor J.A. Venables, University of Sussex, Contemporary Physics, 1993, volume 34, number 3 'As would be expected from the list of contributors, this volume is an authoritative treatment of uses of electron diffraction in contemporary studies of mostly inorganic materials. It is to be recommended particularly to materials scientists working with samples resistant to electron beams ... this impressive volume is a very nice collection to have at hand - both as a reference and as a nucleus for research ideas.' Douglas L. Dorset, Medical Foundation of Buffalo, Inc, Journal of Applied Cystallography
