The Physical Chemistry of Solids
The Physical Chemistry of Solids represents one of the first integrated textbooks available on solid state chemistry at an introductory level. Coauthored by two well-known experts, this textbook will provide instructors with the opportunity to develop a unified course on solid state chemistry at the upper-undergraduate/lower graduate level. All major aspects of solid state chemistry are covered as are the principles of chemical bonding and related mathematical concepts and operations. The book concludes each chapter with problem sets to facilitate teaching or self study.

[This book] represents a straightforward treatment of selected topics in the areas of solid state chemistry, materials science, ceramics, and metallurgy....The book ranks well at the level of many other comparable volumes which provide introductory treatments to the subject of solid state chemistry/materials science. --JOURNAL OF SOLID STATE CHEMISTRY The book is truly outstanding and had it been written 30 years ago, the education of students in the field of solids would have been more comprehensive than it has been. --Arthur C.
