'There is no doubt that this text will be an enduring and definitive volume on contact mechanics ... The book is a unique introduction to the subject and its many carefully selected references provide the basis for a continuing education.' B. J. Briscoe, Tribology International 'This is the first comprehensive book of its kind and it can be commended both to undergraduates with a particular interest in contact mechanics and to post-graduate workers whose special interests lie in the field of frictional contact, surface deformation and wear.'
