Abstract : In recent years NaI(Tl) total absorption counters (TASC and TANC varieties) have been described in numerous publications. Following the period of major technical developments of these detectors these counters have been applied to actual experiments in high energy physics. It is the purpose of this article to show how the total absorption technique fits into the fabric of modern high energy physics. Only the most recent applications is discussed.
