From the Publisher:
Boyer (history, U. of Wisconsin) reflects on the impact of the bomb and the nuclear arms race on American life, popular culture, and our imaginations. Pieces are arranged chronologically, and were written in the 1980s and 1990s and previously published as articles in journals, newspapers, and collections. Subjects include the American medical profession and the threat of nuclear war, the writings of Bible-prophecy popularizers, the cultural implications of Reagan's strategic defense initiative, and Hiroshima in American memory. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
An examination of the effect that nuclear weapons have had on modern history. Boyer maintains that the American development of atomic bomb reshaped the political alignments of the postwar world and helped make America the preeminent world power.
