From agricultural soils to the clouds and fogs which influence our weather; from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals; from the food we eat to the structure of biological cells - most of the materials around us are made up of colloids. Colloidal systems are also important in the paper, paint and ink industries, either in the final products or at crucial stages in their manufacture. This book provides an introduction to the area of science which seeks to understand those processes which govern the behaviour of these systems. The emphasis is on providing a sound basic understanding on which later, more advanced study can be built. The book offers a gentle introduction to the author's two-volume reference book Foundations of Colloid Science, which can be used to take the specialist reader into the latest research literature.

'the material included represents a selection of core topics that is covered to varying depths ... As an introduction to the subject area it will be a useful book for the serious reader who is seeking quantitative approach to the principles of colloid science.' Times Higher Education Supplement
'Intended for a senior undergraduate course or for the many workers in science and industry for whom colloid science is important, but not central, to their concerns. Serves as an introduction to the author's comprehensive, two-volume work, Foundations of Colloid Science.' SciTech Book News, June 1994
'will be useful to practising chemists for whom a more detailed knowledge of colloid chemistry would be advantageous' Aslib Book Guide, vol. 59, no. 4, April 1994
Robert Hunter's new book will provide a useful and relatively painless initiation for those entering the field of colloid science, and is a handy reference work for the more experienced. It is remarkable value for money and should find its way into the personal libraries of novices and experts alike. * J. Gregory, Polymer International, Vol. 35, No. 1, Sept '94 *
This new 'little Hunter' is a teaching text in the classical sense. The text is easy to read, sensibly illustrated and introduces many practical examples. * J Klingler, Ber. Bunsenges. Phys. Chem 99 no 3 591-2. *
A succesful book, both in terms of its content and its didactics, which can be recommended to everyone who wants to start in the field of colloids. * J Klingler, Ber. Bunsenges. Phys. Chem 99 no 3 591-2. *
