From the introduction: “The purpose of this book is to acquaint the reader with the general physical concepts and phenomena forming the basis for electrical engineering. Both the microscopic and macroscopic viewpoints are presented. The book was written for engineers, and the viewpoint is that of the engineer. Physics is not engineering, but in electrical engineering the demarcation lines are often so blurred as to be meaningless. In such cases, the material presented to engineers and physicists may cover the same ground, but the reasons for doing so and the approaches followed are often quite different. The material presented in this book is a simplified presentation of well known phenomena and theories originally contributed and published by others. The purpose here is to show the broad physical basis supporting the phenomena associated with electrical engineering, to show the position of each subject in its general relation to other subjects."
