This is a timely book which covers a very wide range of superconducting theory and applications. It deals with the basic physics of superconductors and vortices, the application to small and mesoscopic systems, and the properties of complete devices. The authors are all experts in their field and have reviewed the latest literature in their particular area. Professor Narlikar has extensive experience in editing this kind of book, and his background in materials research make him particularly well suited to put together an account of the various techniques needed to make and study these fascinating systems. Every laboratory working on superconductors on a small scale needs a copy of this book. (Prof. Archie Campbell, Department of Engineering, Cambridge)
