This article is based on the James C. McGroddy Prize lectures we delivered at the 2010 APS March Meeting in Portland, Oregon. We thank the American Physical Society for recognizing the field of multiferroics with the award. We gratefully acknowledge NSF, the US Department of Energy, the Office of Naval Research, and the Army Research Office for supporting our work.
