A comprehensive introduction to high transverse momentum reactions at hadron colliders. It begins with the Standard Model of high energy physics and describes the specialized detectors used. It then gives a general treatment of the reactions and summarizes the state of the art in hadron collider physics defined by Tevatron results. The experimental program at the detectors being built for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is described, with details of the general strategy to find the postulated Higgs particle. Speculations of physics beyond the Standard Model are also discussed.
