Thermochemistry vs. Thermodynamics

What's the difference between thermochemistry and thermodynamics? Is thermodynamics a subset of thermochemistry?

Thermodynamics is the overall study of heat conversions (and other energy forms), while thermochemistry is specifically the study of thermodynamics in regards to chemical reactions.
