Spin Orbit Interaction Hamiltonian is defined as follows:

[itex]

H_{SO}=\frac{1}{2m_{e}c^2}\frac{1}{r} \left(\frac{\partial V}{\partial r}\right)L\cdot S

[/itex]

How does one derive the above Spin Orbit Interaction Hamiltonian from relativistic treatment? Is there a good textbook that elaborates on this?
