'... a careful and comprehensive guide to some of the most fascinating of plasma processes. ... These are fairly new and radidly-evolving subjects and it is hard to think of another book that covers them at this level.' Moira Jardine, Observatory
'... sets a very high standard; it is likely to become a standard reference on the subject for many years to come.' Journal of Fluid Mechanics
'... an admirably clear introduction to the field but should also serve as an authoritative reference work.' M. A. Raadu, Space Science Reviews
'... very clearly written, and can be recommended to any graduate-level student with the necessary background in electromagnetism who requires an introduction to current research in this field. I would regard it as one of the most important books to have been published recently in the general area of plasma physics, and I expect it to become a standard reference which is not likely to be superseded for some time.' R. A. Cairns, Contemporary Physics
"This interplay among theory, experiment and simulation is the most interesting feature of this excellent book....[I]t contains among the best reviews of reconnection and MHD turbulence I have read....[A] well-written book that would be highly valuable to anyone working in laboratory or space plasmas....[I]t presents a clear description of current areas of research, with the emphasis always on the physics of the phenomenon." Spiro K. Antiochos, Physics Today
"...covers a huge amount of material...densely packed with information and broad in scope...very thorough...an excellent monograph for investigators in the field of plasma physics and controlled fusion. It pushes to the limits of what is known in the field. Biskamp is able to make sweeping statements with authority, backed up by a commanding knowledge of theory, simulation, and experiment." Glenn Bateman, American Scientist
"This book is a very valuable contribution to the existing literature, because it provides much needed physical guidance into the complicated and exciting world of MHD theory." Alexander Lifschitz, Mathematical Reviews
