AUTHOR

Ottaviani, Jim, Jones, Jeffrey, Johnston, Janine

SUMMARY

So, you've always wanted to learn how to build an atomic bomb? You're in luck: Jim Ottaviani is not only a comics writer...he also has a master's degree in nuclear engineering! But even though it's not a complete do-it-yourself manual (assembly required, and plutonium is definitely not included), Fallout will bring you up to speed on the science and politics of the first nuclear gadgets. Like its companion volumes, the focus of Fallout is on the scientists themselves -- in particular J. Robert Oppenheimer and Leo Szilard, whose lives offer a cautionary tale about the uneasy alliance between the military, the government, and the beginnings of "big science."Ottaviani, Jim is the author of 'Fallout J. Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and the Political Science of the Atomic Bomb', published 2001 under ISBN 9780966010633 and ISBN 0966010639.
