From Peter Pan to Harry Potter, from David Copperfield to levitating toys, there is magic in conquering gravity. In this first-ever popular introduction to "maglev"-- the use of magnetic forces to overcome gravity and friction--James D. Livingston takes lay readers on a journey of discovery, from basic concepts to today's most thrilling applications. The tour begins with examples of our historical fascination with levitation, both real and fake. At the next stop, Livingston introduces readers to the components of maglev: gravitational and magnetic forces in the universe, force fields, diamagnetism and stabilization, superdiamagnetism and supercurrents, maglev nanotechnology, and more. He explores the development of the superconductors that are making large-scale levitation devices possible, and the use of magnetic bearings in products ranging from implanted blood pumps to wind turbines, integrated circuit fabrication, and centrifuges to enrich uranium. In the last chapters, we arrive at the science behind maglev transportation systems, such as Chinese trains that travel 250 miles per hour without touching the tracks. Packed with fascinating anecdotes about the colorful personalities who have "fought friction by fighting gravity, " the book maintains accuracy throughout while it entertains and informs technical and nontechnical readers alike. With so many new applications for magnetic levitation on the horizon, Rising Force is sure to retain its own magic for years to come.

What causes your cassettes or CD player to make music? Stores information on your credit card? Forms images on your computer monitor, your TV screen? Generates electricity and delivers it to your home? The same force that keeps your grocery list stuck to the refrigerator: the magnet. This book tells the story of a force of nature - the "natural magic" of magnetism - that drives the motors of modern life. "Driving Force" unfolds the history of magnets: how they guided (or misguided) Columbus; mesmerized 18th-century Paris but failed to fool Benjamin Franklin; lifted AC power over its rival, DC, despite all the animals, one human among them, executed along the way; led Einstein to the theory of relativity; helped defeat Hitler's U-boats; inspired writers from Plato to Dave Barry. James Livingston shows us how scientists today are creating magnets and superconductors that can levitate high-speed trains, produce images of our internal organs, steer high-energy particles in giant accelerators, and heat our morning coffee. The book should inform technical and nontechnical readers alike, and should give them a clearer sense of the force behind so much of the working world.
