Lattice dynamics has progressed a long way since Born and Huang's book was originally published in 1954. A paper- back version, scarcely differing from the first edition, is now available. Though there is no discussion of neutron and X-ray scattering, and though the experimental information on elastic, thermodynamic and optical properties is now very dated, the book remains as a classic account of the quantum mechanical foundation of lattice dynamics. It is still an important supplementary text for all serious schol- ars of the theory of the solid state. With this edition priced so reasonably many former library borrowers might con- sider investing in a personal copy. J. A. D.
