It reviews a major portion of the pertinent literature published during 1965 and 1966. The author limits his review to somatic effects (ie, exclusive of perturbations visited upon germ plasm).

The text is divided into two major parts: part 1 reviews late effects in whole organisms, particularly mammals, and part 2 reviews late effects in tissues, cells, and macromolecules. A third part presents a brief comparison of changes in aging as compared with some effects of ionizing radiation.
