Questions of the fundamental nature of matter continue to inspire and engage our imagination. However, the exciting new concepts of strings, supersymmetry and exotic matter build on ideas that are well known to physicists but mysterious and puzzling to people outside of these research fields. Covering key conceptual developments from the last century, this book provides a background to the bold ideas and challenges faced by physicists today. Quantum theory and the Standard Model of particles are explained with minimal mathematics, and advanced topics, such as gauge theory and quantum field theory, are put into context. With concise, lucid explanations, this book is an essential guide to the world of particle physics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... [a] welcome gem. Read this book!' Barry R. Masters, Optics and Photonics News
'Constructing Reality should be received as more than an exposition of quantum theory and the standard model of particle physics. It is a personal and passionate statement - a 'what I believe' essay - by a distinguished physicist with a lifelong love of physics and a deep commitment to public service. In that context, the book succeeds and is a pleasure to read.' Kannan Jagannathan, Physics Today

"Marburger demonstrates a deep understanding of the topic and a polished writing style. The endnotes and the references are valuable for readers interested in higher-level readings or historical memois. Highly recommended." J.F. Burkhart, Choice magazine
