Crystallography and diffraction are widely used throughout many branches of science for studying structure. However, many students find these subjects abstruse and difficult. The aim of this book is to show, through relevant examples and without relying on complex mathematics, that the basic ideas behind crystallography and diffraction are simple and easily comprehensible. It is written by an experienced teacher with the needs of the student to the fore.

This new book is...extremely welcome...The book is well presented, easy to read and copiously illustrated. It is already...the set text for my course. It is written with materials science students firmly in mind, but should be used among a much wider group...this is a timely, well-constructed book which should be seriously considered by every teacher of crystallography and can be recommended to anyone who wants to get to grips with crystallography and diffraction. ( P.Goodhew, Jnl of Microscopy 190, 392-394.)
'...IUCr publications have always been outstanding for quality of presentation and exposition and this book maintains that high standard...The book is aimed at students in all the disciplines which use crystallographic methods...If they are seriously interested in crystallography, this book is as close to ideal as they are likely to get and very good value too...I thoroughly recommend Hammond's book as an enjoyable way of re-visiting old haunts.' ( J.E.Chisholm, Mineralogical Magazine - Feb. 1998, Journal of Mineral Sciences.)
'the fundamentals of crystallography and diffraction are set out in a convincing way in this book...The author has succeeded in explaining the two fields in a very communicative and relatively condensed way' Journal Solid State Electrochemistry
' The Basics of Crystallography and Diffraction starts with crystals and crystal structures. The section on stacking faults and twins will be especially welcomed by geologists and will remind readers that not all crystala are perfect ... throughout, this book is well written and thoughtfulling illustrated. Although amied at mathematically competent undergraduates, it provides an excellent grounding in crystallgraphy. It may be the only book that belwildered non-crystallographers need' Microscopy and Imaging News
