Attention is given to the characteristics of, and relationships among, mictomagnetism, metamagnetism, asperomagnetism, sperimagnetism, speromagnetism, spin glass and cluster glass. Beginning with the familiar types of magnetic order in solids, the consequences of amorphousness and disorder for atomic moments, exchange interactions, and single-ion anisotropies are considered. In all, 14 types of magnetism are noted, including, in addition to the above, incipient ferromagnetism, superparamagnetism, helimagnetism, and itinerant electron metamagnetism.
