This book covers the full range of research on the magnetic fields of stars, from the familiar variations in the Sun's field which coincide with the sun-spot cycle, to the enormous magnetic fields emitted by rotating neutron stars. The field is developing rapidly, and this book by one of its leading figures, provides a carefully developed account.
