Aug 18, 2014“The information is superb and very understandable for someone with minimal physics / medical background – and excellent referencing. It is a fine reference and resource work -and your bringing together the early nuclear medicine research and subsequent knowledge of this within the atomic bomb project is a first.” – Dr. David Palmer, American Studies, Flinders University of South Australia. “Langley provides detailed historical documentation of how medical investigation of ionizing radiation conducted before the war was appropriated for wartime purposes. His careful analysis demonstrates that Manhattan project participants were cognizant that the human casualties of the atomic bomb would far exceed the direct damage caused by its explosive force. Langley’s findings are also disturbing because they demonstrate that after the war the US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) had conclusive information based on the research of Dr. J. G.

We sometimes qualify as “bible” the reference books that contain a huge quantity of informations! So is your book!” – Evelyne Cerf-Pecher, daughter of Dr Charles Pecher.< Less
