4th Edition. From the introduction: “The aim of this book is to present an introductory treatment of atomic and nuclear physics with major emphasis upon the experimental foundations of these subjects. The plan and spirit of this edition are the same as those of the earlier editions. The book is intended for students of science and engineering who have had a general course in physics and have a familiarity with the calculus. The major changes in this book have been the introduction of new material in Parts 1 and 3. A new chapter on the Special Theory of Relativity has been added to Part 1 and the more complete treatment of Brownian motion has been restored. New material on nuclear physics and particle physics has been added to Part 3 to bring the subject up to date. In particular, a treatment of the Mossbauer effect has been introduced in Chapter 14 as well as a discussion of the charge distribution of the proton and other nuclei.”
