Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dexter Masters (1909-89) was a prolific writer and international bestselling author who helped found the Consumer's Union. His legacy includes heading the first task force to publicize the dangers of smoking as well as being among the first to draw attention to the worldwide threat posed by the atomic bomb. Katharine Way (1903-95) was a pioneering nuclear physicist who helped establish the journals Nuclear Data Sheets and Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables. Based in Washington, D.C., The Federation of American Scientists was formed in 1945 by atomic scientists from the Manhattan Project who felt they had an ethical obligation to bring their knowledge and experience to bear on critical national decisions, especially pertaining to the technology they unleashed—the atomic bomb.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was interested in the Commonwealth of Nations use of scientist to push its agenda back in the 1940's and 1950's. What I found was a group of scientist who gave cogent and succinct analysis on fission/fusion reactions, using excellent metaphors and similes. Most of the articles lacked the expected socialist twists. There was, at that time, a clear understanding of the proliferation of weapondry which MAD [Mutually Assured Destruction] has subdued. The fact is the genie is out of the bottle, and the world is ripe at some point for a rogue detonation. If you are inteested in reading the minds of the cheif world scientist, at that time, this book is a wonerful primer. Simly ignor the propaganda.

This small book was written by the scientist's who developed the first atomic bomb. Their guilt was not just the bomb, but the way America reacted to its use. They felt that this was a dangerous weapon and needed to be controlled, they lost and we are worse off for it!
