There is no other book which gives such a comprehensive overview of the subject, exploring the limits of what can be achieved with purely classical notions. These classical notions have a deep and important connection with the second quantized field theory, which is shown to follow on from the Schwinger Action Principle. The book takes a pragmatic view of field theory, focusing on issues which are usually omitted from quantum field theory texts.
