It is the story of the fundamental components of matter and the forces that bind them together- a tale that is woven around the symmetry at the heart of the universe and the mystery of how this symmetry is broken. The book is divided into three parts. The first three chapters provide the broad historical and philosophical context. The next three describe, in turn, each of the forces that are important in particle physics. The final three chapters are about the modern synthesis of the particles and forces and the search for the last missing piece in the particle physics jigsaw.
