KIRKUS REVIEW

From The New Yorker (if without the hallmark of humor) these pieces which contribute a certain amount of inside intelligence about the atomic bomb. The men who created it, the CIC's campaign of silence and how a top, top secret was kept top secret; the scientists and their bodyguards; Oak Ridge and the life within the so-called Manhattan District; physicist Morrison who went to Hiroshima to study the after-effects; the scientists' lobby -- the Federation of Atomic Scientists; the question of control; the Lilienthal appointment; the White Sands proving ground and the Los Alamos plant; etc.- the fabulous, non-fictional superscience as it was developed. Of particular interest to men.
