The wraps are in fair condition (intact, but curled corner, spots on back, light chipping along edges, and spine with 'DA PAM 39-3' penciled in)). 9 x 6, 577 pages, 27 ounces. SINCE THE BOOK WEIGHS OVER ONE POUND, THERE MAY BE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES IF YOU REQUIRE PRIORITY MAIL OR LIVE OUTSIDE THE USA. XX [From the preface] When 'The Effects of Atomic Weapons' was first issued, in 1950, the explosive energies of the atomic bombs known at that time were equivalent to some thousands of tons of TNT. The descriptions of atomic explosions and their effects were therefore based on a so-called 'nominal' bomb with an energy release equivalent to that of 20,000 tons (or 20 kilotons) of TNT. It is no longer possible to describe the effects in terms of a single nominal bomb. An essentially new presentation of weapons effects has consequently become necessary and is titled 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons.' The main purpose of this new handbook is to describe, within the limitations set by national security, the basic phenomena and the most recent data concerning the effects associated with explosions of nuclear weapons.

    Wraps. Condition: good. Revised Edition. xii, 579, [1] pages. Wraps. Illustrations. Figures. Charts. Tables. Glossary. Bibliography. Index. Covers soiled, ink name and address on front cover. Corners of a few pages bent. Samuel Glasstone (May 3, 1897 - Nov. 16, 1986) authored over 40 textbooks on physical chemistry, reaction rates, nuclear weapons effects, nuclear reactor engineering, Mars, space sciences, the environmental effects of nuclear energy and nuclear testing. One reviewer describes Glasstone as "perhaps one of the best technical writers of the last century." Samuel Glasstone was born on May 3, 1897. He received two doctorates (Ph.D. and D.Sc.), in chemistry at London University. Glasstone discovered the C-H O interaction in 1937. Perhaps his best-known book, co-authored with Philip J. Dolan, was The Effects of Nuclear Weapons, which came out in three editions between 1950 and 1977 (originally titled The Effects of Atomic Weapons). The book, published by the US government, is considered one of the most authoritative texts on the effects of nuclear explosions. One of his other popular books was The Sourcebook on Atomic Energy, published in 1950, and translated in many countries. When 'The Effects of Atomic Weapons' was published in 1950, the explosive energy yields of the fission bombs available at that time were equivalent to some thousands of tons (i.e., kilotons) of TNT. With the development of thermonuclear (fusion) weapons, having energy yields in the range of millions of tons (i.e., megatons) of TNT, a new presentation, entitled 'The Effects of Nuclear Weapons,' was issued in 1957. A completely revised edition was published in 1962 and this was reprinted with a few changes early in 1964. In addition, laboratory studies, theoretical calculations, and computer simulations have provided a better understanding of the various effects. Within the limits imposed by security requirements, the new information has been incorporated in the 1962 edition. The material is arranged in a manner that should permit the general reader to obtain a good understanding of the various topics without having to cope with the more technical details.
