London: Faber & Faber, (1946), 12mo. 158 p. Hardback. "At a time when the world thinks of atomic energy as a devastating medium of death with only problematical benefits in the uncertain future, a distinguished surgeon comes forward as counsel for the defense and tells a fascinating story of the vast boons which atomic and nuclear research have already conferred on mankind... Mr. Bankoff rounds off his fascinating little study by an eloquent appeal for more and more research into atomic physics, for the purpose of destroying not mankind but the enemies of mankind which cause disease, disfigurement, and death" 1st ed.
