Basic limitations of the one-body theory of α-decay are first pointed and then the essential features of the recent theory due to the present author are described. The Geiger-Nuttall relation is then derived from the fission-character of α-decay as revealed by the recent theory. The relation turns out to be log T½(expt.) = C-DEK(α).
