Crystal Structure Analysis : Principles and Practice
structural chemistry, and plays an ever more important role in the careers of graduate students, postdoctoral and academic staff in chemistry, and final-year undergraduates.
Much of the material of the first edition has been significantly updated and expanded, and some new topics have been added. The approach to several of the topics has changed, reflecting the book's new authorship, and recent developments in the subject.

Table of contents
important acquisition are: comprehensive and up-to-date character; emphasis on practical aspects of the topic; inclusion of many worked examples and problems; and an abundance of illustrative material throughout.'
Current Engineering Practice `'... perhaps the most comprehensive and easy to use introduction to fundamental theory and techniques of structure analysis by X-ray diffraction, to appear from the world's scientific and technical publishing to date. It will be an invaluable reference to X-ray crystallographers, practitioners of X-ray analysis and all those involved in materials characterization.''
Current Engineering Practice `'This textbook should definitely be considered for use in introductory courses in X-ray structure determination as it provides a good framework for course organization. The concise treatment of the material (all of small-molecule X-ray crystallography in 265 pages) will work well when supplemented with lectures and additional class discussions.'
Acta Crystallographica `'The book is very well written, has an excellent organization of material and is filled with many illustrative examples of the subject matter.'
