Unjustly neglected classic sets forth the fundamentals of thermodynamics clearly and simply enough to be understood by a beginning student, yet with enough subtlety and depth of thought to appeal also to more advanced readers. Maxwell goes on to elucidate the fundamental ideas of kinetic theory, and-through the mental experiment of "Maxwell's demon"-points out how the Second Law of Thermodynamics relies on statistics. New introduction and notes by Peter Pesic.
