A brief background is given related to general questions on the creation and development of the Three-Dimensional Linearized Theory of Stability (TDLTS) of deformable solid bodies in the historical aspect. It is noted that the intensive study and applications of this theory were caused by investigations of the stability of thick-walled metal structures and thin-walled composite structures with low shear strength; fracture and delamination of composite and pre-stressed materials; stability of rubber-like materials and structural elements; stability of rock workings etc. The sources for development of the TDLTS for elastic and viscoelastic composites within the scope of the initial imperfection criterion are also outlined briefly. A text preview is given and the scope of each chapter of the book is discussed. The list of references contains only works related to the general issues of the TDLTS.
