In the first part, the book gives an up-to-date summary of the observational data. In the second part, it deals with the kinetic description of cosmic ray plasma. The underlying diffusion-convection transport equation, which governs the coupling between cosmic rays and the background plasma, is derived and analyzed in detail. In the third part, several applications of the solutions of the transport equation are presented and how key observations in cosmic ray physics can be accounted for is demonstrated.

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This excellent book is the most complete development of cosmic ray astrophysics theory published. It is aimed at current researchers and commencing postgraduate students. ... One of the great benefits of this book is the explicit description of all the assumptions that are made and the limitations they imply on interpretations from the theory. This makes the book particularly valuable for postgraduate students and established researchers starting in the field." (M.L. Duldig, The Physicist, Vol.39 (3), 2002)
