520    Impressive progress has been made in the field of laser-
       plasma acceleration in the last decade, with outstanding 
       achievements from both experimental and theoretical 
       viewpoints. Closely exploiting the development of ultra-
       intense, ultrashort pulse lasers, laser-plasma 
       acceleration has developed rapidly, achieving accelerating
       gradients of the order of tens of GeV/m, and making the 
       prospect of miniature accelerators a more realistic 
       possibility. This book presents the lectures delivered at 
       the Enrico Fermi International School of Physics and 
       summer school: ""Laser-Plasma Acceleration"", held in.
