The purpose of this book is to explain the concepts underlying the spectacular recent advances in our understanding of the microcosmos - the world within the atom. It is a world inhabited by a fascinating collection of particles and forces. Although in many ways it resembles a scaled-down version of the everyday world, bizarre phenomena can occur that have no counterpart in the experience of our senses. When we probe the subatomic domain, we must be prepared for situations totally beyond our imagination, though not, one hopes, beyond our comprehension. 173pp. Index. Bibliography.
