A model for the composition of subnuclear particles is proposed in which the constituents are strongly bound leptons. The model is shown to be consistent with a variety of experimental evidence and to provide straightforward explanations of observed decays and interactions for all three generations of hadrons and for gauge bosons. The processes taking place in these reactions are identified. A conclusion of the study is that antimatter is essentially contained within the matter world.
