This volume provides a useful introduction to the helicity method, summarizing over ten years of research on the subject. The book requires only some familiarity with Feynman diagrams and Dirac algebra, and many examples are included to clarify the textual material. The reader will find the extensive listing of helicity amplitudes and cross-sections for many of the most important QED and QCD processes at high energies, many not found in the literature previously, particularly useful.

R. Gastmans, Professor, Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Leuven, and Research Director, National Fund for Scientific Research. Tai Tsun Wu, Gordon Mackay Professor of Applied Physics, Harvard University.Review:
`.. this is an excellent account of the `helicity technique' for computing Feyman amplitudes.'
`The clear writing and explanation, together with its role as a reference book for matrix elements make it a valuable addition to the phenomenologists library.' Nuclear and Particle Physics
'This book ought to be in every physics department library. Most high-energy physicists would benefit from reading at least the first three chapters. It is a remarkable book.'
Professor J. C. Taylor (University of Cambridge), Contemporary Physics, Volume 32, No. 3 1991
