Review quote

"This book achieves remarkable scope within its 423 pages....The authors, who are theoreticians, are remarkably conversant with the experimental techniques that are used to study 2D crystals....I think this volume will have the greatest value for the experimentalist who is interested in pursuing new work in this field and wants to get a feeling for the most important theoretical principles and results. It will also be very useful for experienced theoreticians who want to have a source volume for a wide variety of results in 2D physics; it will be an excellent place for them to get into the original literature on point in the history of the sundial." --SCIENCE
