The revised edition of Kubler's study of itinerant electron magnetism has been significantly updated to reflect the rapid developments in the field. To the study of electronic structure and magnetism he has added new material on Heusler compounds and double petrovskites. He has also refined earlier comments on spin fluctuations. The topics addressed include density-functional theory, energy band theory, electronic structure and magnetism at finite temperatures. Knowledge of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and solid state physics will be helpful to an understanding of this work. For those with this background the formulae are clearly explained step-by-step as are the conclusions. As a bonus, a website is provided with a downloadable program for those who wish to do electronic structure calculations on their PC and Fortran compiler.
