Longman Physics Topics

The Longman Physics Topics series was written to provide background material for physics courses that were modern in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The authors were closely associated with the Nuffield Physics Project, and had an intimate knowledge of the spirit of that course. The books were not intended to be textbooks so they did not give the answers to investigations that students might be carrying out in the laboratory. Instead they showed the relevance and application in the outside world of the principles studied in school.

Despite their age, these books contain text and diagrams that are still useful today. It is the accounts of applications and especially some of the photographs that are particularly dated.
