pris book is a comprehensive balanced and up-to-date introduction to nuclear physics that describes the experiments made to study nuclear reactions and nuclear structure, and the theories and models that have been developed to understand the properties of nuclei and their interactions. Aftera historical introduction, there are chapters on nuclear accelerators and detectors, elementary particles, nuclear forces, nuclear reaction theory, nuclear models, nuclear and heavy ion reactions, nuclear astrophysics and nuclear reactors. While primarily aimed at undergraduates it will also serveas a reference for graduate students and professional nuclear physicists.

Editorial Reviews

"This book follows in the post-second world war tradition of excellence in nuclear physics textbooks...It not only provides good coverage of the fundamentals of the subject but also gives an account of ideas and data in 1990s...The theoretical development is thorough and detailed. The expertuse of experimental data demonstrates the deep knowledge of the authors...It is likely that this book will become one of the standard texts and with occasional updating could remain so for many years." Times Higher Education Supplement, Friday 27th November 1998
