Description - Introduction to Magnetic Materials by B. D. Cullity
This book covers the basics of magnetic quantities and how to measure them, the properties and behavior relevant to magnetic devices, and the materials actually used in practice. It is presented at a practical rather than theoretical level. This allows the reader to develop a real physical understanding of the various quantities involved in magnetism through measurement, which is stressed throughout the book.

Author Biography - B. D. Cullity
The Late B. D. Cullity was a group leader for the Manhattan Project in WWII, and then became professor of metallurgical engineering at Notre Dame University. He is best known for two widely used textbooks, Elements of X-Ray Diffraction and this book, Introduction to Magnetic Materials. His major research interests were in the use of x-ray diffraction to measure lattice strains and in magnetostrictive phenomena. C. D. Graham worked at the General Electric Research Laboratory for fifteen years before moving in 1969 to the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He has published works on magnetic domain structure, anisotropy, thin films, permanent magnets, amorphous alloys, and magnetic measurements, plus several book chapters and three encyclopedia articles.
