Maxwell's Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism: The Central Argument

by Howard J. Fisher

Howard Fisher follows up on his elucidation of Faraday's Experimental Researches in Electricity with this guided study of Maxwell's great work. Taking us through the parts of the Treatise that Maxwell himself identified as central, Fisher provides illuminating notes to the physical concepts and explains the mathematics in a way that allows even nonspecialists to understand this extraordinary text, upon which much of our understanding of the universe is founded.

About the Green Lion and its Caregivers

Photo of CaregiversThe Green Lion lives with its caregivers in its lair in the mountains above Santa Fe, New Mexico. Its tawny mountain lion cousins can be seen on the next ridge. Coyotes sing nightly outside the window, undoubtedly wishing they could be as green, as feline, and as alchemically powerful as our handsome beast.

The Green Lion's caregivers, William H. Donahue and Dana Densmore, are independent scholars whose special interests are the primary texts in history of science, history of mathematics, and history of ideas. They have studied and taught these texts at St. John's College and elsewhere and since 1995 have been designing and producing the books they love.

The Green Lion is also lovingly cared for by Associate Editor Howard J. Fisher.
