This paper reviews a few main aspects of the solid state magnetism necessary to understand magnetic properties and behaviour of magnetic materials. The treatment of a subject as broad as present one must necessarily be limited and incomplete. Netherless we deal with the role of magnetism and magnetic materials in modern technology and cover some aspects of material such as : magnetostrictive and magnetoresistive materials, soft and hard magnetic materials, magnetic multilayers and magnetic recording.
