How do electric motors work?

The short answer to this question is that electric motors convert electrical energy into magnetic energy, and then into rotational force. But it is clearly not that simple. An electric motor is the fundamental electro-mechanical energy converter that uses the forces of electricity, magnetism, angular momentum, and inertia, as well as electro-magnetic theory, Faradays theories of electric current, and Tesla's theories of alternating current. Now if that is not an impressive list, I don't know what is.
