Reissued in the Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences series, and first published in 1950, this important and classic book presents a mathematical theory of plastic materials, written by one of the leading researchers in the area. "the author...has done his work so well that it is difficult to see how it could be bettered. The book should rank for many years as an authoritative source of reference." Engineering " the reviewer's opinion this book should be in the possession of all those who wish to undertake study and research in the theory of plasticity." Mathematical Gazette
