I have found this book immensely useful and a pleasure to read as a senior undergraduate engaging in summer research in fusion. It is perfect for learning basic plasma physics in the context of fusion, which may not be easy with books that discuss plasma more generally (such as F.F. Chen's introductory book, though that is very good).

"Physics of Fully Ionized Gases" by Lyman J Spitzer. Spitzer was a Professor a Princeton in the 's. He basically took the ideal gas laws and extended them to charged particles - forming the basics of "single particle" behavior in magnet.

Walter J. Heikkila, in Earth's Magnetosphere, Particle simulation in 1-D. To truly understand magnetospheric plasma physics we must be able to follow the time development of various quantities in three dimensions. For example, we need at least two dimensions to describe an X-line in the magnetic field topology (often the x-z plane), but another set for an emf in the electric field.

And the one thing that I always loved about physics, and I don't think it's always fully appreciated, sometimes as you start to learn physics, you'll see all these complicated formula, all of these kind of complicated problems, but it's super valuable to realize it's all coming from some of these basic ideas.

Volume 2 of the Handbook of Plasma Physics is devoted largely to situations where the nonlinear interaction is so strong that the assumptions of weak turbulence are violated. In particular the following aspects are covered: a review of a group of theories that invoke a renormalization procedure; - parametric instabilities driven by external pump fields; - the strong interaction between.
