A review is presented of the issues associated with the generation of large-volume, high-pressure, nonequilibrium plasmas, as well as the approaches that have been developed for generating these plasmas using electrical discharges in gases. The various instabilities that have been overcome to obtained these plasmas as well as the techniques for quenching them are also reviewed. Last, recent efforts to obtain atmospheric pressure plasmas are discussed with particular emphasis on the capillary plasma electrode discharge, which we have used to obtain high (electron) density nonequilibrium plasmas
