This paper is internded to demonstrate to students that electron Landau growth of plasma waves is an easily understood and computed phenomenon. This derivation does not use the usual Fourier-Laplace transform technique with the inversion and final result being obtained by contour integration and residue theory. Instead, a simple treatment, following the original work of Vlasov, is used. Landau's original solution is recovered both for growth and decay, but only the growing part rigorously satisfies the initial assumptions.
