Editorial Reviews

Review

"...contains a wealth of information in well-summarized fashion...should be considered a valuable reference text for those who would rather hear from the experts than from a single voice." Elmar R. Reiter, Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics

"...Introduction to Space Physics is strong enough to form the backbone for an introductory graduate class....Because of its broad coverage, it will be an excellent addition to the library of any space physicist who occaisonally needs reminding of the issues and advances in other specialities." Michael E. Brown, Physics Today

Book Description

Designed as a text for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate students, this volume attempts to establish the curriculum for the modern student entering the emerging field of space physics, by covering almost all aspects of space plasmas in the solar system.

This is a very comprehensive book. It is excellent if you are beginer who knows basic electricity and magnetism, but have not dealt with space plasmas.

This book is an excellant introduction to the field of Space Physics. Unfortunately, it has not been updated since its original publication. It would be nice to have the results of the extensive research that has been done since then incorporated into a new edition of this book. Even so, I have not come across any other books published since then that are nearly as good. When I bought my copy ten years ago, I would certainly have given it 5 stars.

Book is very poorly written. Each chapter is by a different author and thus there is a wide range of writing styles. The problems at the end of each chapter are poorly written too. If you want to learn plasma and space physics get a different book.
