The Woman Who Knew Too Much, Revised Ed.: Alice Stewart and the Secrets of RadiationGayle Greene 2017, 2nd Edition
Author Gayle Greene traces Stewart's life and career as she came up against ever more powerful authorities, first the British medical profession, then the U.S. nuclear industry, and finally the regulatory agencies that set radiation safety standards throughout the world. Stewart endured the fate of other women scientists in having her findings dismissed and funding cut, but today is recognized as a pioneering figure in epidemiological research on the dangers of nuclear radiation. In her preface to the second edition, Greene looks at new information that's come out about the forces and individuals responsible for marginalizing her as a scientist and downplaying the disturbing implications of her research.
