THE ATOMIC STORY

For boys who have a basic knowledge of chemistry and physics, this will be an interesting history of atomic energy from the time of Democritus to 1945's exploding of the bomb over Hiroshima. Campbell traces the developments in chemistry and physics from Dalton's atomic theory, to Becquerel's recognition of atomic energy, Bohr's discovery of the nucleus, and finally to the Manhattan project. Without revealing any secrets, he coordinates the contributions of various agencies, and tells how the engineering feat was achieved. A layman's handbook.
