This is a new and greatly revised edition of Professor Chandrasekhar's classic book Liquid Crystals, first published in 1977. The subject of liquid crystals has grown into an exciting interdisciplinary research field with important practical applications. This book presents a systematic and self-contained treatment of the physics of the different types of thermotropic liquid crystals - the three classical types, nematic, cholesteric and smectic, and the newly discovered discotic type. Included is a description of the structures of these four main types and their polymorphic modifications, their thermodynamical, optical and mechanical properties and their behaviour under external fields. The basic principles underlying the major applications of liquid crystals in display technology and in thermography are also discussed. This book will be of great value to advanced students and researchers in condensed matter physics, chemical physics, materials science and technology with an interest in the physics, chemistry and applications of liquid crystals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... Classic, reassuring, slightly old-fashioned air. It was concise and carefully worded, with plenty of black and white figures. In a fast moving field this will be a standard text for years to come.' Chemistry & Industry
"...the new edition brings the reader comfortably up-to-date with many of the developments in the field during the past 16 years....will be a highly desirable resource for the more advanced graduate student and the researcher in liquid crystals and related fields." Charles Rosenblatt, Physics Today
"...a good reference for senior graduate students and researchers in this interdisciplinary area of liquid crystal research...relects well the scientific literature..." Ronald Dong, Physics in Canada
