251822,205 (4)2
Quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory explaining the strong nuclear force that binds together the components of the atomic nucleus, is one of the four fundamental forces of nature that control the universe in which we live. This absorbing book covers the ideas and stories behind QCD, the successes and the puzzles, the unsolved mysteries and the characters involved. The subject is discussed in an accessible and entertaining way, assuming only the minimum physics and mathematics background knowledge. It is a fascinating read for anyone interested in science and a solid introduction for students embarking on particle physics courses.… (more)

Wow, a nonmathematical but meaty book devoted to quantum chromodynamics, the theory of the strong nuclear force. (Like quantum electrodynamics and electroweak theory, it's a quantum field theory and part of the Standard Model of particle physics.) All about "color"-charged quarks and gluons.
