  • Four Laws That Drive the Universeby Peter Atkins

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 18.99

    The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work.... more...

  • Liquid Materialitiesby Peter Atkins

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2010; US$ 144.95

  • The Laws of Thermodynamicsby Peter Atkins

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 18.99

    From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas or the cooling of a hot metal, to the unfolding of a thought in our minds and even the course of life itself, everything is governed by the four Laws of Thermodynamics. These laws specify the nature of 'energy' and 'temperature', and are soon revealed to reach out and define the arrow of time... more...

  • What is Chemistry?by Peter Atkins

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 18.99

    Most people remember chemistry from their schooldays as a subject that was largely incomprehensible, fact-rich but understanding-poor, smelly, and so far removed from the real world of events and pleasures that there seemed little point, except for the most introverted, in coming to terms with its grubby concepts, spells, recipes, and rules. Peter... more...
