This book is intended for readers who wish to thoroughly understand the basic concepts required for venturing into the mechanics of deformation in solids. A great emphasis has been placed here on deriving the theoretical concepts with full mathematical rigor and in further illustrating their application through several solved and unsolved examples. Students who desire to pursue higher studies or sit in competitive exams after their undergraduate education will appreciate the style of the present book. The book will also be useful for Masters and PhD students working in the broad area of Solid Mechanics and for teachers of undergraduate colleges in solidifying their grip over the subject. Web-links to my NPTEL video lectures for every theory section of the book are also provided in the HTML version of the book (hosted on my IIT webpage) in case a reader desires in learning through video.
