Here the development of nuclear weapons is viewed from the perspective of the scientist. From the discovery of fission to the Manhattan Project, to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the arms race and early steps toward arms control, this book provides a context for developments in the period 1939-1963.
Lawrence Badash traces the course of this tumultuous and apocalyptic period with scientific clarity and sympathetic understanding.
