I have started reading PCT, Spin and Statistics, and All That. Are there any more recent texts that I should be looking at instead?

R. Haag, Local quantum physics, is a classic.

There are usually 3 texts: Haag's is the most recent and emphasizes the algebraic C*/W* approach (the first 100 pages include the standard approach) to which he's one of the founding fathers. The natural follow-up to <PCT, Spin and Statistics, and All That> is Bogolubov's et al. text of 1975: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000IM4HLS/?tag=pfamazon01-20 which is hard to get, but may be available in a good library.

Yep! I found these three books referenced elsewhere after I posted the question. $199? I'm getting it through interlibrary loan. ;) Thanks!
