J. A. Knappett is a lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Dundee, UK. R. F. Craig is a former lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Dundee, UK.
"The reviewer considers that Dr Knappett, in revising this
classic textbook, has made a substantial additional contribution to
the years of service given by Dr Craig to the civil engineering
profession, in general, and the geotechnical community in
-Catherine O'Sullivan, Imperial College, London, UK
"Jonathan Knappett is breathing a fresh lease of life into this
old favourite with several new slants, including for the first time
the design philosophy of Eurocode 7 and much new material...I
propose to keep it on our list of 'must consult' textbooks."
-Edward Bromhead, Kingston University, UK
"Buying a copy of Craig as an undergraduate is a lifetime career
-Geoffrey Blight, Witwatersrand University, South Africa
"All the background needed for those engaged in geotechnical
engineering practice, foundation engineering and construction can
be found in this book."
-Fred Boadu, Duke University, USA
"As a professor and civil engineering professional, I found this
8th edition of Craig's Soil Mechanics to be everything a beginning
engineering student is looking for in an introductory textbook on
soil mechanics... I would highly recommend this as one of the
finest textbooks on the topic of soil mechanics."
-Gregory Ohrn, Northern Arizona University, USA
"This valuable textbook is highly recommended to students,
engineers, and educators in the field of geotechnical
