The field of electroexcitation of nuclear M1 transitions is reviewed. The subject is introduced with an elementary description of the relationship between backward-angle electron scattering and M1 excitation. Data analysis methods as well as 180 degree electron scattering techniques are also treated. The discussion of experimental results emphasizes the strength of the spin-flip transition, the concentration of M1 strength in self-conjugate nuclei, the degree of fragmentation of this strength in other nuclei, and the response of odd-A rotational nuclei and heavy nuclei to 180 degree electron scattering.
