Verschuur G.L. Hidden Attraction. The History and Mistery of Magnetism
Oxford University Press. 1993. 267 p.

Verschuur ( Interstellar Matters ) properly includes the lodestone and quantum electrodynamics in the 400-year lineage of the electric light bulb. Most of Verschuur's history has fueled millons of middle-school science reports: Galvani, Oersted and Ampere coax out of magnetic phenomena the invisible genie of electricity; Farady, Maxwell and Hertz make a theoretical haess for it. But taking matters one step further, Verschuur reveals his larger theme: that simple curiosity about magnetism has led us to equations that can express truths about some aspects of nature itself.
