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 fledgling field of space physics. The book provides a broad, yet selective, treatment of the subject, covering virtually all aspects of space plasmas in the solar system. There are sections on the sun and solar wind, the magnetized and unmagnetized planets, and the fundamental process of space plasmas including shocks, plasma waves, ULF waves, wave-particle interactions, and auroral processes. In addition to emphasizing analysis, the authors also place importance on underlying phenomenology with extensive attention to observations.

"...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
