In response to many requests, the material posted as separate chapters since the 1990s (see bottom of page) has been recompiled as a single PDF document which nowadays is searchable. Here it is

Reversible Markov Chains and Random Walks on Graphs (PDF, 516 pages).

Also, Peter Ralph has kindly run it through LaTeXML, to make a nice HTML version, and here it is

Reversible Markov Chains and Random Walks on Graphs (HTML).

Some things to note

- The content has not been changed.
- The chapters which previously had integer numbers have retained the same numbers; other chapters have now acquired integer numbers, as indicated below.
- Cross-refs between chapters are neither explicit nor reliable.
- There is some minor duplication of sections.
