Hadron Physics, as the physics of the strong interaction whose fundamental theory is QCD, is coming into its own as a scientific subject. There are exciting new results in hadron spectroscopy and new persepctives in hadron structure. take together with the increasing precision of lattice QCD calculations and plans for new experimental facilities these developments paint a picture of a vibrant and growing sub-field of physics. At the time of the Hadron Physics summer school we did not yet know that the 2004 Nobel prize would be awarded to Gross, Politzer and Wilcek for their contributions to QCD. But this fact nicely underlines our optimism and enthusiams for Hadron Physics. This graduate text contains the invited Hadron Physics lectures presented at the 58th Scottish Universities Summer School in Physics (SUSSP58) held in St Andrews from 22nd -28th August 2004, augmented by selected contributions from the associated topical workshop held from 29th August - 1st September 2004. We believe that this collection of lectures from the school and invited talks from the workshop provides a comprehensive overview of Hadron Physics and should prove useful for both graduate students and senior scientists.
