This classic sourcebook on atomic energy focuses on the overarching theories and the important discoveries, rather than on minute details that a non-specialist might find difficult to understand. The book begins by detailing the discoveries and knowledge, as of 1950, of atomic structure, radiation, isotopes, and particle acceleration. It then addresses the neutron, nuclear structure, nuclear fission, nuclear power, and cosmic rays. A readable style and excellent organization minimize the requirement for a scientific background.
