This compact volume comprising a lecture series in a rather restricted but highly important group of areas in radiobiology brings together not only the theories of radiation injury but the practical aspects of their application. Definite comparisons are made of the nature of the radiotoxic effect as related to total dose, and, what is more important, to the dose rate. No effort is made to minimize the genetic effects of whole-body irradiation, but it is pointed out that many generations must be passed before definite conclusions can be drawn concerning the effects of natural background radiation and the possible contributions
