This is the first book devoted to the use of X-ray beam techniques to study magnetic properties of materials. It covers both experimental and theoretical issues. The three main topics are dichroism, elastic scattering (both non-resonant and resonant diffraction) and spectroscopy. In thepast decade there has been an expansion of activity in the field, driven by the availability of intense, tuneable and highly polarized X-ray beams from synchrtron facilities. The pace of events is likely to continue with the start of new (3rd generation) facilities, including the EuropeanSynchrotron Radiation Facility, Grenoble, and the Advanced Light Source, Argonne National Laboratory. USA.
S. W. Lovesey is at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. S. P. Collins is at Daresbury Laboratory.

Editorial Reviews

`It must surely play a part in raising the awareness of researchers in magnetism in the potential value of synchrotron-based techniques. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers with an interest in magnetic materials and for professionals who wish to consider the use ofsynchrotron radiation in their research... It is surely an indispensable item for the university and the institutional library.'Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, vol. 5, part 3, May 1998
