A history of man's use, misuse and control of the power of radiation from the discovery of x-rays and radium to the present day. Artificial radiation is now an ever-present potential danger, from sources as varied as hospitals and nuclear power-stations, and Caufield tells a story of political pressure, denials of responsibility by authorities and companies, the setting of ever-conjectural safety limits and accidents.
