SUMMARY

Debate over nuclear policy, whether about nuclear weapons or nuclear energy, most often focuses on issues of the present or the future. The documents collected inThe American Atomremind us, however, that the issues involved have a pasthellip;We follow the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the 'father of the American bomb,' thorough his letters, observations of those close to the Manhattan Project and testimony to the Atomic Energy Commission. President Dwight Eisenhower's 1953 'Atoms for Peace' speech demonstrates how far back calls for nuclear sanity go, and the listing of nuclear-weapons accidents shows how dangerous it may be to ignore those calls.Cantelon, Philip L. is the author of 'American Atom A Documentary History of Nuclear Policies from the Discovery of Fission to the Present', published 1992 under ISBN 9780812213546 and ISBN 0812213548.
