Suggested books for additional reading and reference

Jackson: Classical Electrodynamics (3rd ed.) (standard textbook)
Smythe: Static and Dynamic Electricity (classic textbook with good chapters on statics)
Landau, Lifshits: Electrodynamics in Continuous Media (classic book with mathematical rigor)
Landau, Lifshits: Classical Theory of Fields (radiation of E&M and gravity waves)
Cohen-Tannoudji, Dupont-Roc, Grynberg: Photons and Atoms, Introduction to QED (good introduction to QED)
Van Bladel: Electromagnetic Fields (probably most advanced E&M book with difficult practical examples)
