About the book:

Robert Purrington captures an extraordinary era in this survey nineteenth-century physics. Putting physics into the historical context of the Industrial Revolution and the European nation-state, he traces the main figures, including Faraday, Maxwell, Kelvin and Helmholtz, as well as their interactions, experiments, discoveries, and debates. The success of nineteenth century physics laid the foundation for quantum theory and relativity in the twentieth.
