A lack of heroes, a lack of open culture

One of the things that I've thought about often in relation to mechanics is:

Basic information about Plasticity

Does anyone know of a simple book, approximately 50 pages or so, for plasticity?. I am looking for something that is similar to Morton Gurtin's "Topics in Finite Elasticty" published by SIAM. This book is an uncluttered treatment of finite deformation elasticity and was very useful for me during graduate work. I am NOT looking for 200-300 page texts, becasue I will never get around to reading them.

Graduate Student or Graduate Employee?

Lately I have been thinking that "Graduate Student" is a misnomer. The correct title should be "Graduate Research Assistant" or "Graduate Engineer".  After more than a year spent in industry, I think that there really is no difference in the work done. Except that the work environment is more flexible in academia.
