The book is entitled "Causality, Electromagnetic Induction and 
Gravitation", Oleg Jefimenko, 1991, Electret Scientific publishing.
I know that 21st Century Books carries the title.  Otherwise, it is very 
hard to get. Just under $20.00 (paperback)

Unlike many books and publications with similar titles, this is by no 
wacko or erstwhile "wanna-be"!  It is a focused study by a leading 
professor of electromagnetic studies.  It is, therefore, necessarily, 
very mathematical. (That's why I am wadding through it!)  Nonethelss, it 
is a very pensive study of some wrong assumptions and non-causal 
relationships which have been thaught to us for years.  It was my own 
questioning of the principle of magnetic fields associated with 
displacement currents which led me to this book at the insistence of my 
good friend, Charles Yost (Electric Spacecraft Journal).
