This foundational survey of plasma physics served as a standard text throughout the 1960s and 70s, and remains a valuable source of historic content. An edited collection of papers by some of the pioneering experts in plasma physics, the collection includes Klimontovich's article on quantum plasmas, Buneman's writings on attenuating and amplifying waves, and Yoler's review of magnetohydrodynamics.
