"Appearance of books like the one discussed here is highly desirable and valuable for researchers, practical engineers and students who already work in MHD. It will also doubtless attract to this fascinating area many individuals for whom this book will be the first inspiring encounter with MHD." Herman Branover for Int. J Heat Mass Transfer, (GB), 1989 "... an excellent collection and discussion of referenced works which should be of interest to researchers in this subject area ... the authors have provided a genuine service by making their discussion of the Russian literature available in English." Richard A Gardner Appl Mech Rev, 1989
