Looks like a fairly standard intro to plasma physics with some more advanced topics at the back.
This makes a good second book on plasma physics - Chen's Introduction to Plasma Physics has yet to be beaten as a first book on the subject in my experience. But Cairns provides a good reference on the basics of a wide variety of theoretical approaches, phenomena, experimental methods and applications in plasma physics, admittedly requiring a much greater mathematical knowledge than Chen, but without being terrifying like Ichimaru's "Basic" Principles of Plasma Physics, which is anything but basic. A minor irritation is Cairns' use of the informal "goes as" for "proportional to." Not sure why it winds me up so, given I know perfectly well what he means.
The final chapter is on applications. This means fusion reactors and "space physics"; what he really means is naturally occurring plasmas, which, since they constitute ~99% of "normal" matter, makes them of great scientific interest.
A brief excursion into the realms of plasma instrumentation - exactly how does one measure what the density, temperature or electromagnetic field is in a plasma? Fairly superficial coverage but better than nothing.
