This book presents Schull’s interpretation of data on the effects of atomic radiation that he and others collected in the years following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the summer of 1945. As a member of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission (ABCC), he studied the late and delayed effects of radiation exposure to survivors of the bombings, and in his work he attempts to present the atomic bomb survivor story in all of its complexity. He provides a detailed chronology of major events from July 1945 when the first detonation took place in Alamogordo, New Mexico until July 1991 when reporting on malignancies was still being done. An epilogue presents graphs, diagrams, and tables. An extensive bibliography is included.
