The Bomb: Nuclear Weapons in their Historical, Strategic and Ethical Context

Beatrice Heuser

The Bomb: Nuclear Weapons in their Historical, Strategic and Ethical Context by Beatrice HeuserThis tightly argued and profoundly thought provoking book tackles a huge subject: the coming of the nuclear age with bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, and the ways in which it has changed our lives since.

Beatrice Heuser
