Radiation: Time, Space and Spirit--Keys to Scientific Literacy Series.
This discussion of radiation considers the spectrum of electromagnetic energy including light, x-rays, radioactivity, and other waves. Radiation is considered from three aspects; time, space, and spirit. Time refers to a sense of history; space refers to geography; and spirit refers to life and thought. Several chapters on the history and concepts of radiation, a time line related to the concepts, a map of the important geography of these concepts, a glossary of important terms, and a list of several study suggestions are included.
