Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Many accounts, personal and secondary, have been written by and about the victims of the atomic bombs, the best known being John Hersey's Hiroshima ( LJ 11/1/46; 9/15/85 rev. ed.). Following an essay which discusses (and indicts) the decisions to drop the bombs, the Seldens have assembled literary expressions, factual and fictional, written by those who experienced the world's only nuclear warfare. The testimony appears in the form of "Novellas," "Poetry," a "Photo Essay," "Citizens' Memoirs," "Pictures by Atomic Bomb Survivors" (not available for review), and "Children's Voices." As the editors assert, these voices " . . . merit careful listening," but their graphic descriptions of unimaginable horrors challenge both stomach and conscience. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
Certain essays from this book were requirements for an international relations class I took. After reading two of the stories I had to read the entire book. It is a truely excellent window into the effects of the atomic bomb on humans. It took me below the mushroom cloud, it was graphic, gripping, and effective. It does not focus on justifications for the bomb, it focuses purely on the effects. I plan on buying it in the near future because it is such an excellent testimonial.

Some of the essays are tragic. Very moving and well written. This is a good book to understand the suffering caused by the Atomic Bomb.
