John Wiley Sons, Inc. is proud to announce an important new series of textbooks The MIT Series in Materials Science and Engineering.
In response to the growing economic and technological importance of polymers, ceramics, and semi-conductors, many materials
science and engineering departments are changing and expanding their curricula. The advent of new courses calls for the development
of new textbooks that teach the principles of materials science and engineering as they apply to all the classes of materials.
The MIT Series in Materials Science and Engineering is designed to fill the needs of this changing curriculum. Based on the
undergraduate curriculum of the MIT Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the series will include textbooks for
the core courses in the field as well as texts for courses in specific material classes. The first three textbooks in the
series will be: Thermodynamics of Materials, Vol. I, by David Ragone (0-471-30885-4) Thermodynamics of Materials, VoL. II,
by David Ragone (0-471-30886-2) Physical Ceramics: Principles for Ceramics Science and Engineering, by Yet-Ming Chiang, Dunbar
Birnie III, and W. David Kingery (0-471-59873-9)
