This book deals with nuclear and particle physics at an introductory level. The first part covers nuclear properties, decay, structure, and reactions and is followed by a chapter which provides a bridge from nuclear forces and decay to elementary particles and their interactions. The next parts cover the strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions and the book concludes with two chapters dealing with the problems facing particle physics and with the astrophysical and cosmological implications of these subjects. The book attempts to give an up-to-date description of nuclear and particle physics at a level suitable for undergraduates. Since the primary test of a physical theory is by examining its ability to make correct quantative predictions, the reader is encouraged, whenever possible, to appreciate the quantative aspect of a phenomenon in addition to learning a descriptive explanation.
