"...an interesting book which has fully accomplished its objectives. The text is well written and clearly illustrated. The exercises at the end of each chapter provide a good teaching tool. This book can be recommended as a textbook for advanced courses in geomechanics. As well, it will be very useful as a reference for practicing geotechnical engineers and as a guide for researchers in soil mechanics." Aleksandra M. Vinogradov, Applied Mechanics Review "A good book for graduate students and faculty interested in learning about the applicability and limitations of critical state soil mechanics in research and in engineering practice."
