In general, a dielectric is considered as a non-conducting or insulating material (such as a ceramic or polymer used to manufacture a microelectronic device). This book describes the laws governing all dielectric phenomena.

· A unified approach is used in describing each of the dielectric phenomena, with the aim of answering "what?", "how?" and "why" for the occurrence of each phenomenon;
· Coverage unavailable in other books on ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, pyroelectrics, electro-optic processes, and electrets;
· Theoretical analyses are general and broadly applicable;
· Mathematics is simplified and emphasis is placed on the physical insight of the mechanisms responsible for the phenomena;
· Truly comprehensive coverage not available in the current literature.
