@qu:"Editing by P.W. Hawkes is immaculate and the production, in the usual style of Advances in Electronics and Electron Physics, results in a volume that will be a handsome addition to any bookshelf." @source:--MRS BULLETIN @qu:"With the accelerating pace of research and development in so many areas of microscopy, keeping abreast of the widespread literature is becoming increasingly time-consuming. In Advances in Optical and Electron Microscopy the Editors are to be congratulated on bringing together in a convenient and comprehensible form a variety of topics of current interest." @source:--J.A.
