Item description for Quantum Chromodynamics by Walter Greiner, Stefan Schramm & Eckart Stein...
The book is a self-contained introduction to perturbative and nonperturbative Quantum chromodynamics (QCD) with worked-out exercises for students of theoretical physics. It will be useful as a reference for research scientists as well. Starting with the hadron spectrum, the reader becomes familiar with the representations of SU(N). Relativistic quantum field theory is recapitulated, and scattering theory is discussed in the framework of scalar quantum electrodynamics. Then the gauge theory of quarks and gluons is introduced. In the more advanced chapters, perturbative and nonperturbative techniques in state-of-the-art QCD are discussed in great detail.
The new third edition has been extensively revised and enlarged to cover all new aspects in Quantum chromodynamics.

Excellent reference work Jan 16, 2007
This is a must have for any physics enthusiast, student and professional physicist alike! It's very complete on the topic.
Introduction to strong interaction. Apr 8, 2000
This may be one of the best textbooks about the topic. However, the translation is not done properly. The new edition is supposed to be published three years ago with corrections to the major errors, but the publication date has been postponed several times and it is still not available today. Anybody capable of reading German is recommended to read its original edition in German.
