Magnetism: From Lodestone to Polar Wandering
Magnetism From Lodestone to Polar Wandering Author:D.S. Parasnis This book gives a concise account of magnetic phenomena, starting from the story of the natural magnetic lodestone and ending in the key of polar wandering suggested by rocks containing minerals very closely allied to lodestone. — The author has had in mind three kinds of readers: those interested in science but without the specialist's interest ... more »in mathematical details; those with scientific background who want a broad survey of the present extent of our knowledge of magnetic phenomena; and students at the secondary or college level who want to explore beyond their courses. He ranges from an elementary account of the quantum theory of magnetism to a summary of our present knowledge of the earth's magnetism and the effect of recent research on our view of the earth's past.
