Abstract

In this review talk I cover some recent developments in understanding the role that magnetic fields play in cataclysmic variables. I discuss the recent DNO--QPO unification models; the disk--magnetosphere boundary; some issues concerning the soft blackbody component and the nature of the X-ray spectra in MCVs; whether the SW Sex stars are magnetic, and finally I mention the weird behavior of FS Aur and HS2331+3905.
