Based on the statistical bootstrap model of strong interactions, we develop a description of hadronic matter with particular emphasis on hot nuclear matter as created in relativistic heavy ion collisions. We apply our theory to calculate temperatures and average transverse momenta of nucleons and pions from the decay of hadronic fireballs.
