This revision of Dr. Branwell's highly popular text retains the features which have made it so attractive to students and lecturers over the years. It remains an elementary and non-mathematical introduction to molecular spectroscopy that emphasizes the overall unity of the subject and offers a pictorial perception rather than a mathematical description of the principles of spectroscopy.
Colin Banwell was Professor of Chemistry at the University of Brunei until his retirement in 1992. Prior to this he was Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Sussex. Elaine McCash is a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at York University.
