Suited for courses in ceramics, this text is grounded in the fundamentals of ceramics, with emphasis on solid-state physics and chemistry. Chapters 1-9 deal with the atomic structure, bonding the transport of charged defects and their relationships to conductivity in ceramics, phase diagrams and glasses. Chapters 11-16 deal with specific properties and include mechanical thermal dielectric and optical properties.

"We have been using this text for our juniors ever since its first publication. While the focus of the text is ceramics, the treatment of the kinetics of materials process is highly understandable and easily applied to other materials systems. It is an excellent introduction to mass transport and phase transformations in materials."
?Lisa C. Klein, Rutgers University
"Updated and improved, this revised edition present readers with an exceptionally clear and comprehensive introduction to ceramic science."
