This authoritative work enhances the material outlined in the first volume of Concepts of Particle Physics, presenting it in far greater detail and with a higher degree of sophistication. The authors, both eminent physicists, provide an in-depth discussion of the electromagnetic interaction, explore the accuracy of the quark model by examining the excited states of baryons and mesons, and consider many other topics.

Back cover copy

The goal of this book is to elucidate basic and well-established concepts of particle physics to those who do not have the sophisticated training in mathematics and physics that is habitually expected of students of this subject. For that reason this book does not really belong to what we may call the written tradition of physics.

Review quote

From reviews of Volume 1: '....highly readable, and can be warmly recommended to anyone who wishes to penetrate into this field'
Acta Physica Austriaca

'The book may be recommended to anyone who not only wishes to learn the most important concepts of elementary particle physics, but also to study the intellectual atmosphere which gave rise to the exciting discoveries in this field.' Physikalische Blatter

`A splendid review of subnuclear phenomena ... Physicists of all stripes have reason to look forward to Volume II with considerable enthusiasm.'
Physics Today.
