Classical Griffiths Electrodynamics vs Pollack Electromagnetism.

  1. Sep 14, 2017 #1
    I try to learn electrodynamics as theoretical physicist, Now I study from Griffiths, I find it very good book and do the job! but the problem I need to learn electrodynamic to do future topics like Quantum Electrodynamics, and Pollack I find it good and modern, so my question is what is the best book that can help me to grasp any electrodynamics topic like QED?

    The best book to learn classical electrodynamics in view of QED is Landau&Lifshitz vol. II, because it uses the relativistic formalism from the very beginning.
