Dr. Morin

Since the early 1960s, generations of physics students have been introduced to the concepts of electricity and magnetism (E&M) by physics Nobel laureate Edward Mills Purcell (McGraw Hill, 1963). In 1985, McGraw Hill released a second edition, which became a standard in E&M classes. Then, for the next 28 years, the book remained unchanged.

Now, Dr. David Morin has teamed up with Cambridge University Press on a release of the third edition of the book.  Please read a Physics Today interview with Dr. Morin in "Bookends".
