From the Back Cover:

Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection offers professionals and advanced students a comprehensive background in the major concepts of radiation and radiation protection. Covering both the basic physics of radiation and its applications, it provides a lucid and coherent account of the origins and properties of the different kinds of ionizing radiation, its detection and measurement, and the procedures used to protect people and the environment from its harmful effects. This book illustrates the basic physical principles with an abundance of practical, worked-out examples, numerical problems, real world applications, and data. This thoroughly updated Second Edition includes expanded treatment of biological effects, radon, risk assessment, and statistics.

Researchers, administrators, and graduate students in health physics, environmental sciences, nuclear engineering, medical physics, and other fields involved with ionizing radiation will find Atoms, Radiation, and Radiation Protection an invaluable guide to a vitally important area.
