In the following pages, Russell explains in non-technical language what is known about the structure of atoms and how it has been discovered, in so far as this is possible without introducing any mathematical or other difficulties.

The subject is almost as interesting through the possibilities which it suggests as through what has actually been ascertained already; it is impossible to exaggerate the revolutionary effect which it may have both in the practice of industry and in the theory of physics.
