I have gone through two volumes of Cohen (Quantum Mechanics). Now I need a book on Quantum Statistical Mechanics. The book should use axiomatic formulation using density matrix. Please give me a suggestion. ( I'm also introduced with 2nd quantization slightly) Thanks for any help in advance.

I like the information-theoretical approach. A very good book for both classical and quantum statistical mechanics is
