“Plasticity of Crystals” Book Review: This book covers the plastic features of monocrystals and the explanation of the recent views and experimental information on the structure and characteristics of grain boundaries. It focuses on various issues of the plastic characteristics of one crystal grain (crystallite). It provides a review of the fundamental studies of the mosaic structure of monocrystals and grains of polycrystals. Furthermore the structures and characteristics of interlayers between grains and aggregates are also covered.

3. “Crystal Structure Analysis: A Primer” by Jenny Pickworth Glusker and Kenneth N Trueblood

“Crystal Structure Analysis: A Primer” Book Review: This book describes how and why the detailed three-dimensional architecture of molecules can be calculated by an examination of the diffraction patterns acquired when X-rays or neutrons are scattered by the atoms in single crystals. It includes the nature of the crystalline state, diffraction in general and by crystals. It also analyses the issues of converting the experimentally acquired info into a model of the atomic arrangement that scattered these beams. This book explains methods for refining the approximate structure to the degree justifies by the experimental info. It explains the various kinds of data that can be acquired by modern crystal structure analysis.
