Goldston, Robert J.; Rutherford, Paul H.: Introduction to Plasma Physics, Bristol, Philadelphia, 1995; ISBN-10: 075030183X, ISBN-13: 978-0750301831

From the back cover: "Textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, an introductory lecture course on plasma physics. The text’s six sections lead readers systematically and comprehensively through the fundamentals of modern plasma physics. Sections on single-particle motion, plasmas as fluids, and collisional processes in plasmas lay the groundwork for a thorough understanding of the subject. The authors take care to place the material in its historical context for a rich understanding of the ideas presented. They also emphasize the importance of medical imaging in radiotherapy, providing a logical link to more advanced works in the area."
