This volume is a selection of invaluable papers by P-G de Gennes - 1991 Nobel Prize winner in Physics - which have had a long-lasting impact on our understanding of condensed matter. Important ideas on polymers, liquid crystals and interfaces are described. The author has added some afterthoughts to the main papers (explaining their successes or weaknesses), and some current views on each special problem. The text is simple and easy to read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reviews of the first edition:
"This book collects a series of articles in which problems which had always been thought quite intractable are shown to be solved by simple, but clear thinking. Although the phrase 'simple views' is justified by the clarity of de Gennes' exposition, the problems had been unresolved for decades and it is a tribute to de Gennes' intuitive skill that he has been able to solve so many problems which are not only deep basic science, but also central in modern technology."
Review of the second edition:
"This book surely satisfies the requirements of those interested in this field of physics. On the whole I think that this book can give, especially to a young reader, a certain feeling about the enthusiasm and novelty of condensed matter research during the last three decades."
