Main Question or Discussion Point

I've been looking after some good books dealing with structural engineering of rockets and spacecrafts in general. I know that Rocket Propulsion Elements is a good book on rocket science, but I'm looking not only for propulsion but more specifically for structural design (loads, stress...).

Do you have any tips?

I cannot suggest any books but by searching with "rocket vehicle loads and airframe design" I found a number of items on the subject, including a NASA airframe design reference.
