Summary

In 1966, Isaac Asimov and Theodosius Dobzhansky wrote The Genetic Effects of Radiation as a public information resource for the US Atomic Energy Commission. In Asimov's typically incisive and easy-to-understand style, the pair presents an overview of genetics, and how inherited traits can be influenced by external factors, including radiation, both environmental and man-made. It is a brilliantly concise introduction to one of the major concerns of the Atomic Age: how to balance the benefits of nuclear energy with the risks of radiation sickness and other detrimental effects?
