The book is in five parts: Part I introduces the physical and chemical structure of polymers and their breakdown; Part II reviews electrical degradation in polymers, and Part III reviews conduction and deterministic breakdown in solids. Part IV discusses the stochastic nature of break-down from empirical and modelling viewpoints, and Part V indicates practical implications and strategies for engineers. Much of the discussion applies to non-crystalline materials generally.

Part 1 Introduction to polymers and electrical breakdown: polymer structure and morphology; polymers as wide band-gap insulators; overview of electrical degradation and breakdown. Part 2 Treeing degradation in polymers: water treeing degradation; electrical tree degradation; tree-initiated breakdown; factors affecting treeing; routes to tree inhibition. Part 3 Deterministic mechanisms of breakdown: charge injection and transport in insulating polymers; thermal breakdown; electromechanical breakdown; electronic breakdown; partial discharge and free volume breakdown. Part 4 The stochastic nature of breakdown: statistical features of breakdown; stochastic models of breakdown. Part 5 Engineering considerations for breakdown testing and degradation assessment: breakdown testing and analysis; comparison of AC and DC breakdown behaviour; cable assessment procedures; detecting electrical degradation non-destructively.
