Inorganic chemistry has been changing dramatically, with co-ordination chemistry in particular undergoing a striking resurgence of interest. This has been fuelled by the growth in importance of metals in biology and medicine, and by the new and explosive thrusts into inorganic materials. These changes mean that the late-1990s student of inorganic chemistry needs a greater knowledge and understanding of physical inorganic chemistry. Embracing such topics as bonding state chemistry and cluster chemistry, the discipline underpins the whole of modern inorganic chemistry. This theme spans virtually the whole of physical inorganic chemistry; and an important benefit of this approach is that the book doubles as a text on co-ordination chemistry itself. This text is largely non-mathematical which bridges the gap between the relatively low-level treatments available and the specialist, research-level ones. It provides an account of the traditional areas of the subject, combining this with an introduction to important contemporary research areas, the whole viewed from an integrated theoretical perspective. This book is intended for upper-level undergraduates and graduates in inorganic chemistry.

S. F. A. Kettle, Professor, Royal Military College, Ontario; Professorial Fellow, University of East Anglia.Review:
`Dr Kettle has produced a significant and thorough work on coordination chemistry ... The strength of this lies in its expertly structured and written text, clear diagrams, effective use of appendices, and excellent selections of further reading ... a thorough and scholarly work which does
fill a gap in the market.'
Terence Kee, Education in Chemistry, September 1997
