A collection of reprints alone would, perhaps, have been adequate were the audience simply practicing particle physicists, but we wished to make this material accessible to advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and physicists with other fields of specialization. The text that accompanies each selection of reprints is designed to introduce the fundamental concepts pertinent to the articles and to provide the necessary background information. A good undergraduate training in physics is adequate for understanding the ...
