Reviews

"The three authors are leading world experts in the field and have produced an authoritative and comprehensive text on the subject. There is a wealth of information for students of particle physics and for researchers in high energy physics which has never before been collected together in one place." - Alan D. Martin, Contemporary Physics

"A comprehensive overview of the physics of the strong interaction." - Virginia Greco, CERN Courier
