This book is a detailed history of nuclear science by an important participant, Nobel laureate in Chemistry Fredrick Soddy. The author’s stated purpose is to present the development of atomic energy to a general audience. The narrative traces the advance of atomic theory from its Greek origins, through the discovery of X-rays and subsequent nuclear components, to the first atomic bombs. It provides interesting insights from a chemist who collaborated with physicist Ernest Rutherford in elucidating the structure of the atom in the early twentieth century. Numerous photographs and diagrams complement the text.
