From the Back Cover:

Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) is one of the few American scientists who have become public - and controversial - figures in the twentieth century. This book adds a new dimension to the Oppenheimer story by offering a look at the private man behind the public figure. It consists of letters spanning the period from his Harvard student days in 1922 to his departure from Los Alamos in 1945. The letters are supplemented by recollections of those who knew Oppenheimer and by his own recollections from an interview a few years before his death.

About the Author:

Martin J. Sherwin is the Walter S. Dickinson Professor of English and American History at Tufts University and author of "A World Destroyed, the prize-winning study of Hiroshima and its legacies. He lives in Belmont, Massachusetts.
