A revision of the defining book covering the physics and classical mathematics necessary to understand electromagnetic fields in materials and at surfaces and interfaces. The third edition has been revised to address the changes in emphasis and applications that have occurred in the past twenty years.
This is one hard nut to crack. Make sure you already are proficient with EM and relativity before you start this book.Published on Feb. 12 2011 by Jacob Jacobson
This book (I use the term loosely) stinks. Some reviewers suggest that you can only appreciate this book if you already have a solid foundation in math and Electromagnetics. Read morePublished on May 14 2004
I like Jackson, but I think that most people don't.
Anyway, the reason I'm writing this is to tell the
Reviewer from July 12, 2000 that Jackson DID write

This book seems to just show how well Jackson knows E&M, but does not lead us readers well to know the subject. Read morePublished on Dec 30 2003
Having been through the torture imposed by all graduate programs in physics, I think we all agree that although Jackson's text is an excellent reference and a superb supplementary... Read morePublished on Nov. 3 2003 by A. B. Kaye
Jacksons text still remains as the classic text for E and M. The problems are challenging and difficult I do admit. Read morePublished on June 23 2003 by ncr
For the last few decades, J.D. Jackson's book has been the standard textbook for graduate-level physics courses in electricity & magnetism. Read morePublished on Feb. 22 2003 by Neal J. King
I am currently taking a course from this book and my personal opinion is J.D. Jackson provides nothing but mathematical details. It is poorly written, i.e. Read morePublished on Dec 26 2002 by "andreafarrar"
