Hyperspace An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory by Michael E. Peskin, Daniel V. Schroeder (Contributor)
. An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory is a textbook intended for the graduate physics course covering relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, and Feynman diagrams. The authors make these subjects accessible through carefully worked examples illustrating the technical aspects of the subject, and intuitive explanations of what is going on behind the mathematics.

An Interpretive Introduction to Quantum Field Theory by Paul Teller
. In a critically acclaimed work, philosophy professor Paul Teller lays forth the basic ideas of quantum field theory in a way that is understandable to readers who are familiar with non-relativistic quantum mechanics. Buy this book

Hyperspace The Quantum Theory of Fields: Foundations by Steven Weinberg
. A reference for physicists and mathematicians, or textbook for a graduate course. Nobel Prize-winning physicist Weinberg (U. of Texas) provides a self-contained, comprehensive introduction to quantum field theory. Volume I introduces the foundations, emphasizing the reasons why such a theory should describe nature. Buy this book

The Quantum Theory of Fields: Modern Applications by Steven Weinberg
. The second volume in Weinberg's quantum field theory series covers topics including renormalization, anomalies, BRST quantization and the Standard Model of particle physyics. Buy this book

The Quantum Theory of Fields: Supersymmetry by Steven Weinberg
. This third volume in Weinberg's series on quantum field theory won't be published until December. It will cover topics in sypersymmetric quantum field theory including superunification phenomenology and supergravity. When this is released, it will be the most up-to-date book on supersymmetry available. Buy this book

Hyperspace The Dawning of Gauge Theory (Princeton Series in Physics) by Lochlainn O'Raifeartaigh
. Dublin theoretical physics O'Raifeartaigh has put together a compelling and enlightening reconstruction of the early days of development of gauge field theory from 1916-1956. His history is illustrated by including a selection of relevant articles, many of them appearing here for the first time in English, notably by Weyl, Schrodinger, and other leading theorists of the time.

Lie Algebras in Particle Physics by Howard Georgi
. This book is an update of an old classic. Howard Georgi is the co-inventor (with Sheldon Glashow) of the SU(5) theory. This extensively revised edition of his book text makes the theory of Lie groups accessible to graduate students, while offering a perspective on the way in which knowledge of such groups can provide an insight into the development of unified theories of strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions.

Introduction to Gauge Field Theory Introduction to Gauge Field Theory (Graduate Student Series in Physics) by David Bailin, Alexander Love
. This is a revised edition of the popular text for graduate students on Feynman's path integral treatment of gauge theories. There is a new section on instantons and axions, and calculations have been updated to make use of the more precise values of gauge coupling constants now available. This books assumes a knowledge of relativistic quantum mechanics but none of quantum field theory. It provides an invaluable introduction to the path integral approach to relativistic quantum field theories. Buy this book
