  author={R. Machleidt and D. R. Entem},
  journal={Physics Reports},
We review how nuclear forces emerge from low-energy QCD via chiral eective eld theory. The presentation is accessible to the non-specialist. At the same time, we also provide considerable detailed information (mostly in appendices) for the benet of researchers who wish to start working in this eld.
