Reviews

"A well balanced book offering a solid and detailed insight into physical processes and mathematical tools essential to the kinetic theory of the particle and wave dynamics of electrostatic plasmas. It can well serve as a useful and up-to-date reference book both to those active in a pure scientific research as well as to those involved in pedagogical work including graduate students. Numerous problems and exercises formulated throughout each of the main nine chapters, additional clarifications given in seven appendices, and a broad list of relevant references at the end of the book, help a reader to obtain a better and more detailed insight into plasma kinetics." Zentralblatt MATH "Some of the key intellectual foundations of plasma physics are in danger of becoming a lost art. Fortunately, however, this threat recedes with the publication of this valuable book. It renders accessible those aspects of theroetical plasma physics that are best approached from the perspective of classical mechanics, in both its early nineteenth century and late twentieth century manifestations. . . Certainly it is a book that should be read backwards and sideways, as well as forwards . . . Altogther, this book provides a wealth of theroetical information that is not easily accessible from any other source.It is a book with character, written from a definite viewpoint, but it also facilitates the development of the readers' own perspectiveby offering a clear path to the original research literature."
