This chapter attempts to systematically outline some fundamentals and key experimental results concerning magnetic properties of perovskite manganites, focusing on (i) magnetocaloric properties, (ii) pressure effect on magnetic properties, and (iii) magnetism of manganite nanoparticles. Each family of manganites has unique properties that can be used as a way of tuning the optimum magnetocaloric response. The relatively easy possibility of tuning the Curie temperature of manganites is a key point in developing efficient magnetocaloric materials. The most interesting effects of applied external pressure observed for various classes of manganite systems, such as hole-doped manganites; parent, single-valent, and self-doped manganites; hexagonal manganites, near-half-doped manganites, electron-doped manganites, and manganite nanoparticles are reviewed. Some of the most relevant finite-size and surface effects on the magnetic properties of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic manganite nanoparticles are also discussed. New phenomena such as a suppression of charge/orbital ordering with decreasing particle size, collective states, and nonequilibrium dynamics in ensembles of antiferromagnetic manganite nanoparticles are presented.
