"An authoritative presentation of the basic concepts of particle physics by two internationally recognized leaders in the field...Treats all the major areas of particle physics, including the quark model, hadronic spectroscopy, and the so-called 'standard model'....Of interest to most physicists ranging from upper-division undergraduates to those actually working in the field...Recommended as an essential addition to the library of any institution supporting a physics major."--Choice. "An extremely efficient discussion....It will enable one to understand much of modern particle physics."--Science. "A splendid review of subnuclear phenomena."--Physics Today "The book may be recommended to anyone who not only wishes to learn about the most important concepts of elementary particle physics but also the intellectual atmosphere which gave rise to the exciting discoveries in this field. It is not what appears in this book which separates it from others, but how it is written."
