James Clerk Maxwell: In His Own Words -- And Others
Dover reprinted Maxwell's Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism in 1954, surely one of the first classics of scientific literature over a thousand pages in length to be given new life and accessibility to students and researchers as a result of the paperback revolution of the 1950s. Matter and Motion followed in 1991 and Theory of Heat in 2001.
Some towering figures in science have to speak for themselves. Such is James Clerk Maxwell (1813-1879), the Scottish physicist and mathematician who formulated the basic equations of classical electromagnetic theory.

In the Author's Own Words:
"We may find illustrations of the highest doctrines of science in games and gymnastics, in traveling by land and by water, in storms of the air and of the sea, and wherever there is matter in motion."
"The 2nd law of thermodynamics has the same degree of truth as the statement that if you throw a tumblerful of water into the sea, you cannot get the same tumblerful of water out again." -- James Clerk Maxwell

Critical Acclaim for James Clerk Maxwell:
"From a long view of the history of mankind -- seen from, say, ten thousand years from now -- there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electrodynamics. The American Civil War will pale into provincial insignificance in comparison with this important scientific event of the same decade." -- Richard P. Feynman
"Maxwell's equations have had a greater impact on human history than any ten presidents." -- Carl Sagan

James Clerk Maxwell was born in 1831 and died in 1879.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
FACT: Maxwell Plus Einstein!  Jun 13, 2008
Not only does it provide Maxwell's original work, it also includes the 1954 translation of Albert Einsteins 1931 Appreciation to Maxwell, written to celebrate 100 years since the birth of Maxwell in 1831--this one of at least three major translations of Einstien's In Appreciation of Maxwell Essay.
Maxwell's Theory and Equations  Dec 15, 2001
This text is the classic work of James Clerk Maxwell. It is an essay, printed by the Royal Society of London in 1864 which gives a full insight into Maxwell's theory of electromagnetic waves.

Maxwell's equations are of course the entire basis of modern electromagnetic theory. It is much easier to view these ideas here, in this brief form, than to wade through the 1873 and later editions of Maxwell's mammoth "Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism".

The primary benefit of this small volume is the easy access to this paper. One would otherwise have to go for a collection of Maxwell's papers, which would be somewhat more expensive. The preface to the volume is a useful addition to the work. However, the Introduction by Thomas F. Torrance is a bit over the top. It also introduces a bit of a Theological `spin' to the material, which is not surprising when you see how many Theological/Religious texts this fellow is involved with.

Take or leave this 27 page introduction as you wish. The fact remains that you still get Maxwell, which is why you wanted the book in the first place!
