This 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 nucleic and their interactions. After a 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 serve as a reference for graduate students and professional nuclear physicists.

P. E. Hodgson is at University of Oxford.Review:
"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 expert
use 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
