This edition acts as an introductory text, simultaneously demonstrating the underlying principles and applicability of thermodynamics to the behaviour of non-metallic materials and to the transformation of metallurgy materials. Normal derivations of thermodynamic equations, whenever possible, are accompanied by derivations which illustrate the thermodynamics of the situation. The order in which material is presented is such that the text maintains a continuity of the development and the use of the principles. In addition, worked examples which illustrate the application of thermodynamics to the consideration of the behavior of materials systems are included.

David R. Gaskell received a B.Sc. in Metallurgy and Technical Chemistry from the University of Glasgow and a Ph.D. from McMaster University. He joined the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania in 1967 and later moved to Purdue University, where he is currently a Professor of Materials Engineering.Review:
'This is an excellent book...it's really what a 'standard' textbook should be: it is detailed, and complete, but builds up from the basics rather than jumping straight in to advanced concepts...I like the iclusion of questions, most importantly, with solutions, and the worked examples are also a valuable resource. Plenty of diagrams for explanations, all clearly referenced and sensibly placed; and there are useful appendices and references.'. Dr. Zoe Barber, Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK..
T...he long life of this textbook is as good an evaluation of its quality as any book reviewer's praise. ...It will remain as a classic for times to come..
