The physics of electromagnetic radiation is electrodynamics, a subfield of electromagnetism.
EM radiation with a wavelength between approximately 400 nm and 700 nm is detected by the human eye and perceived as visible light.
Electromagnetic waves as a general phenomenon were predicted by the classical laws of electricity and magnetism, known as Maxwell's equations.

 Olympus Microscopy Resource Center: Light and Color - Electromagnetic Radiation
Electromagnetic radiation, the larger family of wave-like phenomena to which visible light belongs (also known as radiant energy), is the primary vehicle transporting energy through the vast reaches of the universe.
The term electromagnetic radiation, coined by Sir James Clerk Maxwell, is derived from the characteristic electric and magnetic properties common to all forms of this wave-like energy, as manifested by the generation of both electrical and magnetic oscillating fields as the waves propagate through space.
A standard measure of all electromagnetic radiation is the magnitude of the wavelength (in a vacuum), which is usually stated in units of nanometers (one-thousandth of a micrometer) for the visible light portion of the spectrum.

 Electromagnetic Radiation: Field Memo
Radiated power is that power given off by a radiation source (antenna) and carried through space by the EM wave.
Yet, electromagnetic radiation is exactly that, electrical energy moving through space as a wave, and electrical energy in a wire is a special case in which the energy is guided by a wire.
Polarization of a radiated wave is "That property of a radiated electromagnetic wave describing the time-varying direction and amplitude of the electric field vector: specifically, the figure traced as a function of time by the extremity of the vector at a fixed 1 location in space, as observed along the direction of propagation."

 Electromagnetic Radiation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Electromagnetic radiation is a kind of radiation that includes visible light (the light that we see), radio waves, gamma rays, X-rays and other forms of radiation in which the electric and magnetic fields vary simultaneously.
Electromagnetic radiation is divided into different types according to an electromagnetic spectrum.
Shorter wavelengths, such as gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet radiation, are less than 400 nm long, while long wavelengths, such as infrared radiation (heat), microwaves, radar, TV signals, and long-wave radio signals are greater than 700 nm and may be longer than a kilometer.

Electromagnetic radiation is defined as electric and magnetic energy, or fields, traveling through space.
Physicists describe such radiation in terms of its strength (the force the electric and magnetic fields exert) and its frequency (the number of times per second that the fields change direction or polarity).
Electromagnetic radiation at frequencies beginning at visible light and proceeding downward is called non-ionizing radiation.

 Electromagnetic Radiation
Electromagnetic (EM) radiation is defined as fluctuating fields of electrical and magnetic energy, travelling through space, or through suitable media, as electromagnetic waves.
Whenever an alternating electric current is applied to an electric conductor, the movement of the electricity inside the conductor creates electric and magnetic fields which propagate, or radiate outward, into the space around the conductor.

The official position of those who make their money out of producing and using this technology is that we all know that the only thing that electro magnetic radiation can do is heat and if it doesn't heat it can't have any effect.

Unlike the conditions in most previous research on the biological effects of RFR in which whole body exposure was studied, the effects of cellular telephone-related exposure involve repeated exposure with variable durations of a relatively constant amount of body tissue (i.e., part of the head).
In considering the biological effects of RFR, the intensity and frequency of the radiation and exposure duration are important determinants of the responses.

 Electromagnetic Radiation Explained - by Jim Hawkins (WA2WHV)
At the same time, books on electromagnetics present the needed laws of field behavior to explain wave propagation, but are so advanced that it can be difficult for us to relate what we are learning to radiation.
In order for radiation to be able to occur, we have to prove that magnetic and electric fields can exist without the presence of a nearby current and that these fields will "move" through space.
When the voltage and current are observed at the terminals of a radiating conductor or antenna, one component of alternating current is 90 degrees out of phase with the alternating voltage and another component is in phase with the alternating voltage.
