"Nuclear and Particle Physics" both have been very distinct subjects for decades, and are now developing more and more interfaces. Thus, hitherto typical methods of particle physics are adopted by nuclear physics. The authors try to build bridges between both fields and give nuclear physicists a thorough introduction from the fundamentals of particle physics to current research in this field. Contents: - Introduction - Preliminaries and Simple Models - Currents, Anomaly, Solitons, and Fractional Fermions - More on Chiral Symmetry - Introduction to Instantons - Relevance of Instantons - Chiral Perturbation Theory - The Topological and Non-Topological Soliton Model - QCD Sum Rules - References
