An Introduction to the Chemistry of Radio-Active Substances


    There is at present a real need for a small but up-to-date book on radioactivity, in which the subject is dealt with from the chemical as well as the physical side. Dr. Russell's book would seem to supply this need very satisfactorily. It is not overburdened with detail, but gives a balanced account of the subject, which will be found very useful to students. A particularly good feature is the inclusion of the chemical methods of separation and analysis, which sometimes tend to get lost in theoretical speculations.
