Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics
The original edition of Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics was used with great success for single-semester courses on nuclear and particle physics offered by American and Canadian universities at the undergraduate level. It was also translated into German, and used overseas. Being less formal but well-written, this book is a good vehicle for learning the more intuitive rather than formal aspects of the subject. It is therefore of value to scientists with a minimal background in quantum mechanics, but is sufficiently substantive to have been recommended for graduate students interested in the fields covered in the text.

A very good introduction from Introduction to Nuclear and partical physics, especially the second part of this book is totally very clear understanding about existance of different particals with a spcified life time and distiguishablity one each other by introducing one by one additional degrees of freedom or mapped it with specific quantum freedom from one another.Weak interactions(symmetry considerations of hyper charge, iso-spin connected through photon ) Gell-Mann-nishijima formula, symmetry breaking, modified maxwell rules, after i feel it as liquid state feablity of quarck-gluon plasma systems and finally it is end up with asymptotic unification and introduction to grand unification theories and experimentation.
