About this Item

This book, based on a wide range of previously unavailable material, is the first historical assessment of the Bikini tests not compiled by the U.S, government. The author, who has been investigating the operation for nearly two decades, provides a work that covers, in detal, the opposition to the tests by Manhattan Project scientists, the public protests, the effects of radiation released, and the fate of 167 Bikinians who became "nuclear nomads." It also reveals the depths of the military infighting and the impact of the tests on the U.S.-Soviet relations, disarmament talks, and congressional efforts to secure civilian control of atomic energy. 415 pages including index. B&W photos. Fabulous copy. Bookseller Inventory # 010116
