This book is the derivative result of an experiment where a number of texts in various subjects were published by a commercial press under a Creative Commons license. This license is a form of copyright which allows others to modify (we hope improve) and share the book as long as there is proper attribution. All of the material on the ChemWiki has such a copyright.
So who wrote the book? Well, the underlying text, Principles of General Chemistry, published under a the Creative Commons by-nc-sa 3.0 license, can be found at Lardbucket together with an explanation as to why, at least there, the names of the original authors and the publisher are not to be found.
The ChemWiki project and I naturally will follow the request of the publisher in this matter.
The text of this Atoms First edition has a number of modifications (we hope improvements) that have made which can be identified by comparison with the text at Lardbucket.
