From the Back Cover

Electrical Engineering/Electromagnetics Ferromagnetism by Richard Bozorth (1896–1981) A reissue of a broadly recognized classic text, Ferromagnetism covers the basics of magnetics as well as in-depth coverage of magnetic materials. This timeless and invaluable reference also includes:
  • complete definitions of magnetic phenomena and theories
  • illustrations of magnetic materials
  • detailed explanations of basic magnetization and domain theory
  • practical use of many fundamental expressions
  • useful technical data on magnetic materials
Ferromagnetism will provide a useful resource to any electrical engineer, physicist, researcher or designer, interested in the field of magnetics. Also of Interest… Electromagnetics History, Theory, and Applications by Robert S. Elliott, UCLA A Classic Reissue in the IEEE Press Series on Electromagnetic Waves A handy reference for engineers and physicists, this IEEE reprinting of the 1968 classic text provides a deep, fundamental understanding of electromagnetics. Providing a pertinent historical overview for each chapter, it shows how special relativity is used to develop a complete electromagnetic theory from Coulomb’s Law. Electromagnetics contains many applications for electrostatics, magnetostatics, and electrodynamics and also covers electromagnetic theory for dielectric, magnetic, and conducting materials. 1993 Hardcover 656 pp IEEE Order No. PC0372-3 ISBN 0-7803-1024-1 Field Theory of Guided Waves Second Edition by Robert E. Collin, Case Western Reserve University Long considered the most comprehensive account of electromagnetic theory and analytical methods for solving waveguide and cavity problems, this new Second Edition has been completely revised and thoroughly updated—approximately 40% new material. Packed with examples and applications, Field Theory of Guided Waves provides solutions to a large number of practical structures of current interest. The book includes an exceptionally complete discussion of scalar and dyadic Green’s function. Both a valuable review and source of basic information on applied mathematical topics and a hands-on source for solution methods and techniques, this book belongs on the desks of all engineers working in microwave and antenna systems! 1991 Hardcover 864 pp IEEE Order No. PC0256-8 ISBN 0-87942-237-8

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By kelly londry on August 2, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Bozarth's book is very, very thorough - for the technology of 1951. It is well-written and packed with both practical and theoretical information. For example, magnetically soft materials are discussed in exceptional detail, including their chemistry, manufacturing methods, and performance data. In contrast, coverage of magnetically hard material is inadequate. Alnico permanent magnets are the most current types it addresses. PM technology has come a long, long way since 1951. So too have a few other technologies I can think of. Although Bozorth's book remains worthwhile, the immutable consequences of passing time takes a toll that is discernable. Certainly the book is not worth the $186.00 retail price suggested by Wiley - which leads to my next point.

Wiley's 1993 edition of "Ferromagnetism" appears to be an exact reprint of the original version first published in 1951. I base this conclusion on a close review of the downloadable excerpts available on the Wiley-IEEE website. The table of contents are IDENTICAL in every respect, right down to the page numbers. The preface and first chapters are also the same, word-for-word. This is the fifth or sixth case I have come across, wherein an outdated technical book has been "repackaged" with a more recent publication date. In my view, this practice is designed to intentionally mislead consumers of technology-related material, which changes quickly. My rating of four stars relates to the book itself, in the year 2007.

Format: Hardcover
This book gives a huge amount of magnetic properties data (saturation field density, permeability, magnetisation etc) for metals such as Iron and nickel, but more importantly, a vast magnetic data for a wide range of Fe-Ni alloys and Fe-Co-Ni. Also it shows the effect of heat treatment and mechanical work on these properties.
If I recall right, this book first published in 1951.

Format: Hardcover
This book gives one all the information one needs to get a good handle on magnetic properties of materials and how the latter vary as a function of almost any parameter one can think of.

The only problem is its age, which makes the chapters dealing with magnetic theory and measurement techniques a bit outdated (this explains the 4 stars). However, these last two subjects are treated extensively in other more recent books.

Nevertheless, this a very useful book to have which covers all the aspects of ferromagnetism in a clear and concise manner.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book by Bozorth is long considered THE classics on ferromagnetism. The amount of information, data and theory is amazing.

If you are seriously involved with soft magnetic materials this book is a MUST.
