Explanations are indeed unique
If you are interested in learning from 100 years old ideas and experiments that were verified at that time, you must read this book. It will help you understand many
misconceptions of what electricity really is until today 2012. It is actually, difficult to accept many of the ideas in this book since the acceptance of Relativity in main stream, not to say that Relativity is right or wrong, this book will tell you if it is and that is before 1912, before Relativity was even talked about. Dielectricity is a name not more thought these days but here, it is a fundamental element that generates energy, when in complement with Magnetism. Fausto.

Page 67 - The dielectric field of a condenser, or its " charge," is capacity times voltage: Ce. It is, however, the product of the current flowing into the condenser, and the time during which this current flows into it, that is, it equals i t. Applying the law Ce = it (17) to the oscillating energy transfer: the voltage at the condenser changes during a half-cycle from — e0 to...

Page 13 - ... while the dielectric field or flux passes from one conductor to the other in arcs of circles at right angles to the circles of magnetic flux (Fig. 16). Figure 2 represents a crosssection of two conductors of a transmission line and the magnetic and electric fields superposed. The magnetic flux ,£ of the circuit is proportional to the current i, with a proportionality factor L. Thus, * = Li.
