## Description

From the back cover: “This book provides a detailed introduction to the basic principles of the theory of dielectrics including relevant topics in electrostatics. Using a classical approach it concentrates on the macroscopic behaviour of dielectric materials, and also provides an introduction to the microscopic theory. The text is further supported by appendices which provide detailed derivations of key results and an extensive bibliography points the reader towards essential further reading.”

From the Preface to the Revised Edition: “This edition contains four new appendices which, it is hoped, will clarify points in the main text.”
