        Unified field theory today is often equated with "theory of

    field theories that unify previously distinct phenomena have been
    successful & are now well established. Maxwell's theory that unified
    the electric and magnetic vector fields into a single skew-tensor field,
    as special relativity makes clear, & the Weinberg-Salam electroweak
    unification of E&M & the weak interaction is now widely accepted.
