Progress in the investigation of atomic energy is so rapid and much of it so carefully concealed that few scientists are aware of all that is being accomplished. This purports to be the first edition of an annual volume on atomic energy. It begins with a history of nuclear science and a description of activities in various phases. The seventh chapter provides a survey of developments in the field of atomic energy, and the eighth chapter deals with the legal aspects. Of special interest to the medical profession are chapters 10, 11 and 12, which are concerned with human welfare and radioisotopes. The appendixes provide data in tabular form, a list of national scientific academies and reference to the important books on the subject.
