This book is a reissue of the third and last edition of a classic text providing the reader with a comprehensive account at first degree or introductory graduate level of the principles and experimental aspects of electricity and magnetism, together with an elementary account of the underlying atomic theory.
The book is available in a two-volume format. This second volume includes coverage of electrical and magnetic properties of matter, dielectrics, conduction in metals, magnetic materials, semiconductors and their applications in electronics, superconductors, electronic devices and circuits, magnetic resonance.
SI units are used throughout and there are problems at the end of each chapter.

For many years, teachers of electricity and magnetism have been able to present their own personal selection of what is interesting and important in the subject, knowing that they can fill the gaps by referring the student to Bleaney and Bleaney for the full story. * The Times Higher Education Supplement *
Since its first appearance (as a single volume) in 1957, this book has served generations of British undergraduate physics students as the ultimate authoritative reference on the physics of electricity and magnetism. * John A. Shaw, Division of Physical Sciences, Hatfield Polytechnic *
