Good (Relativistic) Plasma Physics Textbooks?

  1. Dec 5, 2011 #1
    Hello everyone at PF,

    Long time since I've logged on but always reading...

    I'm looking for a solid (as broad as possible, not too much depth) introductory book on plasma physics, just to get a broad view of the subject.

    Also, are there any textbooks which deal with the subject, from the basics to the tough stuff, in a covariant manner? I'm interested in applications to relativistic plasmas and also curved spacetimes, so would prefer to study it from the bottom up in a tensorial/covariant fashion.

    Thank you in advance!
