ABOUT THIS BOOK
"Catherine Caufield has written an important book on an important topic:
the history behind the safety standards limiting the effects of high energy
radiation on human beings. . . . Provides an immense amount of information
in a very readable form."—W. Alan Runciman, Prometheus

"From fallout and radon to radioactive smoke detectors and dental X-rays,
Caufield traces the proliferation of the uses of radiation in medicine,
industry and the military, and in generating energy. An intelligent,
non-alarmist history."—Publishers Weekly
