Book suggestions for accelerator and neutrino physics

  1. Jan 19, 2013 #1

    I am writing my (undergraduate) research thesis on accelerator/particle/neutrino physics.
    I'm planning on writing about the history of this field (HEP) and what such research has tried to accomplish.

    Currently, I'm looking for some books to read up on the history and such of HEP.

    I have David Griffiths Introduction to Elementary Particles from when I took a particle physics course, but I'm looking less for "text" book feel books (if that makes sense?)

    I would really appreciate some suggestions. I'm looking at books myself, but if anyone knows of some great ones, I'd be very grateful!

    For Particle Physics use the book "Introduction to High Energy Physics" by Perkins it is a non mathematical book used by Experimental Physicists. As a textbook use "Quarks & Leptons: A Modern Introduction to Particle Physics" by Halzen and Martin.
    If you are looking for History of Physics then "X-ray to Quarks" is good book to read.
