Monte Carlo simulations of a variety of hard-particle liquids and liquid mixtures have been conducted in the isotropic liquid region of the phase diagram. The position- and orientation-dependent pairwise structure is computed and the results are compared with integral equation theories, allowing us to examine the closure relations, and evaluate their accuracy, in a direct fashion. The equation of state and stability properties of these phases relative to the nematic liquid crystal phase, are also discussed.
