This book deals with nuclear and particle physics at an introductory level, giving 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 quantitative predictions, the reader is encouraged, whenever possible, to appreciate the quantitative aspect of a phenomenon in addition to learning a descriptive explanation.
