"Editor Terence Cosgrove has done an excellent job in balancing the scope and length of the various contributions, together with ensuring amazing uniformity of style despite the different contributors. The book sets its smooth, readable style with an introduction to colloidal dispersions. The content of the following chapters not only covers the principals of attraction and repulsion forces and their role in colloid stability, but also gives an excellent overview of polymer absorbtion and its stabilising and destabilising effects. There are also well balanced contributions on surfactants, microemulsions, wetting and aerosols. The latter is all too frequently omitted from colloid texts and is therefore a welcome inclusion".
"Throughout, the contributors give excellent references for further reading".
"the book of the course (Spring School in Colloid Science, Bristol University), is very welcome and I'm sure will be of immense benefit to those who need the basics of colloid science for their industrial or academic activities.
