Radiation and Radioactivity on Earth and Beyond is a remarkable compendium of information on how radiation affects the Earth and its inhabitants. The book provides insight into the history of and developments in the fields of radioactivity and nuclear energy. Basic facts on the nature of radioactivity are presented, including the structure of matter from elementary particles to atoms and ionizing radiation and its interactions with matter.
The book is organized so that anyone interested in the effects of radiation will find it easy to read. A page with comments describing the major points to be covered precedes each chapter. At the end of each chapter there is an annotated bibliography that provides details regarding contents, readership, and other features of interest for each book listed. A glossary of scientific and technical terms is included at the end of the book.
The Second Edition of Radiation and Radioactivity on Earth and Beyond features new information regarding the Chernobyl nuclear accident, the production of elementary particles, radiation exposure, the geopolitical effects of the end of the nuclear arms race between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union, and the future of nuclear power. This book is important reading for anyone concerned with radiation, nuclear energy, and scientific space research.
