This is a great introduction to classical field theory, speaking as a mathematical physicist who came to this book knowing quite a bit perhaps I'm the wrong reviewer for neophyte field theorists!

But Thirring reviews the mathematical formalism first, quite clearly and coherently, and then investigates classical electromagnetism. The author uses differential forms throughout, as opposed to the physicist's abstract index approach. This is great for mathematicians and people interested
