The beginning part is devoted to the quantities and units of interaction of ionizing radiation with matter, the description of radiation sources and facilities. Next chapters are devoted to radiation technologies such as sterilization, cross-linking and degradation of polymers,

polymerization, grafting and curing, radiation treatment of agricultural products, radiation synthesis, Last but not least, attention is devoted also to radiation processing in environment, , radiation in medical applications, economic considerations and dosimetry in context of safety.
