Review:

'Lorna Arnold...is particulary successful in making the scientific issues of the nuclear project accessible to non-technical readers such as students in history, international relations and politics and she provides a highly informative account of a very important phase in Britain's nuclear history.' - Dan Keohane, Keele University

'...an excellent book that sheds needed light on the world's third thermonuclear power.' - Jack M. Holl, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

'Britain and the H-Bomb tells the tale of the men who developed Britain's thermonuclear device through the drama of the tests in the Pacific. It does so with clarity and skill.' - Stuart Croft, Nature

'Britain and the H-Bomb is a valuable contribution to the history of the arms race, and deserves a wide readership.' - Peter Gissing, University of Sydney
