Summary "This acclaimed second series enters the world of electricty and magnetism and moves on to 20th century discoveries of relativity and quantum mechanics. The ideas of Faraday, Ampere, Maxwell, Einstein, Schrodinger and Heinsberg are all explored and demonstrated by the immensely entertaining Dr. david L. Goodstein, professor of Physics at Caltech, using demonstartions, experiments, excellent computer animation sequences and historical re-enactments. This is an absorbing, challenging and deeply informative follow-up series for science sctudents." -- cover
