This clear book presents a critical and modern analysis of the conceptual foundations of statistical mechanics as laid down in Boltzmann's works. The author emphasises the relation between microscopic reversibility and macroscopic irreversibility, explaining fundamental concepts in detail.

From the reviews
"Gallavotti has written a somewhat ideological and quite personal book. Certainly one may disagree with him on some issues. But he has expert knowledge of what he discusses and also of many things he chooses not to discuss. And since he also knows the history of the subject, his opinion must be taken seriously. We may thus thank Gallavotti for giving us a fresh, authorative and readable introduction to a fundamental area of conceptual physics." (D. Ruelle, Physics Today, 2001)
