From the Publisher:

A new edition of the most comprehensive text/reference available on the methods and instrumentation used in the detection of ionizing radiation. Updated to reflect advances since the first edition came out in 1979. Retains the general organization of the first edition--all topics of importance are covered in sufficient detail to lead the reader from basic principles to examples of modern applications. Covers modern engineering practice; provides useful design information; and contains an up-to-date and thorough review of the literature.

It provides in-depth coverage of the basic principles of radiation detection as well as illustrating their application in a full set of modern instruments. In addition to a complete description of well-established detection and spectroscopic methods, many recently developed approaches are also explored. These include extensive new discussions of semiconductor detectors with unique properties, recently developed scintillation materials and photomultiplier tubes, and several gas-filled detectors of new design.
