An engaging writing style and a strong focus on the physics make this comprehensive, graduate-level textbook unique among existing classical electromagnetism textbooks. Charged particles in vacuum and the electrodynamics of continuous media are given equal attention in discussions of electrostatics, magnetostatics, quasistatics, conservation laws, wave propagation, radiation, scattering, special relativity, and field theory. Extensive use of qualitative arguments similar to those used by working physicists makes Modern Electrodynamics a must-have for every student of this subject. In 24 chapters, the textbook covers many more topics than can be presented in a typical two-semester course, making it easy for instructors to tailor courses to their specific needs. Close to 120 worked examples and 80 applications boxes help the reader build physical intuition and develop technical skill. Nearly 600 end-of-chapter homework problems encourage students to engage actively with the material. A solutions manual is available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/Zangwill.

Endorsements
"An outstanding achievement on so many levels, including scope, depth, insight, pedagogy, and historical background. It will become an instant classic." JOHN D. JOANNOPOULOS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Zangwill s recreation of classical electromagnetic theory will surely become the standard text on the subject. His comprehensive and scholarly treatment clarifies subtle points that are often ignored or concealed." SIR MICHAEL BERRY, University of Bristol
"I am happy to recommend this book. It is carefully and creatively organized, clearly written, and has many, many interesting problems to solve." GERALD A. MILLER, University of Washington
"This book richly deserves the word modern in its title. Zangwill develops an intuitive picture of electrodynamics that will be a great resource for all." ROB PHILLIPS, California Institute of Technology
"I am impressed by the careful and thorough way this book addresses subtle questions like the behavior of electromagnetic fields in dielectric matter. It will be an essential resource for both researchers and teachers who are not willing to sweep this and other delicate issues under the rug." ALAIN ASPECT, Institut d Optique and Ecole Polytechnique
"Zangwill has written an excellent graduate textbook, with a large number of carefully chosen problems and examples. Boxes describing interesting and quirky applications add color to the presentation and references to quantum mechanics and modern topics will surely engage students." R. MERLIN, University of Michigan
"This comprehensive textbook gives refreshing insights into classical electrodynamics, with emphasis on the physics without sacrificing mathematical rigor. I particularly like the numerous worked examples and sections on applications, which show the relevance of the topics to modern research. The problems, with comprehensive solutions for the busy instructor, will be excellent for students to get to grips with the material." SHIRLEY CHIANG, University of California-Davis
