Motivated by recent dramatic developments in the field, this book provides a thorough introduction to spin and its role in elementary particle physics. Starting with a simple pedagogical introduction to spin and its relativistic generalisation, the author successfully avoids the obscurity and impenetrability of traditional treatments of the subject. The book surveys the main theoretical and experimental developments, as well as discussing exciting plans for the future. Emphasis is placed on the importance of spin-dependent measurements in testing QCD and the Standard Model. This book will be of value to graduate students and researchers working in all areas of quantum physics and particularly in elementary particle and high energy physics. It is suitable as a supplementary text for graduate courses in theoretical and experimental particle physics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The strong point is, as might be expected from Professor Leader's lifetime interest in the subject, the pedagogical aspects and the clear exposition of formalism throughout. The book will appeal to graduate students and experimentalists working in the field who need clear guidance in the spin dependent aspects of the electroweak Standard Model and QCD.' Contemporary Physics
"Leader's book offers a fine discussion of the concrete topic of spino.I am enthusiastic about this book. It is carefully and clearly written. Each of the three sections will be useful to a specific audience. The book as a whole should be in every university and research institution library." Physics Today
