An incomparable reference for astrophysicists studying pulsars and other kinds of neutron stars, Theory of Neutron Star Magnetospheres sums up two decades of astrophysical research. It provides in one volume the most important findings to date on this topic, essential to astrophysicists faced with a huge and widely scattered literature. F. Curtis Michel, who was among the first theorists to propose a neutron star model for radio pulsars, analyzes competing models of pulsars, radio emission models, winds and jets from pulsars, pulsating X-ray sources, gamma-ray burst sources, and other neutron-star driven phenomena. Although the book places primary emphasis on theoretical essentials, it also provides a considerable introduction to the observational data and its organization. Michel emphasizes the problems and uncertainties that have arisen in the research as well as the considerable progress that has been made to date.If one wants to create a plasma, one can simply subject neutral gas to some ion- ization source, e.g., intense radio-frequency power. ... The outer planets of the solar system, such as Saturn and beyond, might arguably be nearer places astrophysically for finding nonneutral ... Holloway (1973) argued that, if some of the positive equatorial charge were to be removed, it could not plausibly be replaced.
