ATOMS FOR THE WORLD

A splendid reflective and on-the-scene report of the International Conference for the Peaceful Use of Atomic Energy held at Geneva in August, 1955, comes from the widow of Enrico Fermi and makes her second popular contribution to the literature of atomic study (see Atoms mn the Family, 1954). Starting with the birth of the conference idea in Eisenhower's U.N. speech, Mrs. Fermi continues with the many plans for it and finally the actual results of the historic conference itself. An important and vividly written report that should do much to bring home the fact that atoms are as much a currency for peace as for war.
