Textbooks:
Foundations of Perturbative QCD
John Collins [Cambridge University Press; 1
edition (June 30, 2011)]
ISBN-10: 0521855330 ISBN-13: 978-0521855334
Giving an accurate account of the concepts, theorems and their justification, this book is a systematic treatment of perturbative QCD. It relates the concepts to experimental data, giving strong motivations for the methods. Ideal for graduate students starting their work in high-energy physics, it will also interest experienced researchers.
An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory
George Sterman [Cambridge University Press]
ISBN-10: 0521311322
Excellent general treatment.
QCD and Collider Physics
R. Keith Ellis, W. James Stirling, and Bryan R. Webber
A detailed overview of high-energy collider physics emphasising the role of QCD. Topics covered include the QCD Lagrangian, the properties of asymptotic freedom and colour confinement which derive from it, jets, heavy quarks, electroweak gauge bosons, Higgs bosons and methods of measuring the strong coupling constant.
Applications of Perturbative QCD
(Frontiers in Physics, Vol. 77)
Richard D. Field
Perseus Books (Sd); (June 1989)
ISBN: 0201483629 / ASIN: 0201142953
unfortunately, the availability of this is limited; however it is an excellent book
