"This edition of the 'living newspaper' compares clearly, dramatically and fearlessly the past, present, the future of the Atom Bomb. With the use of dramatic scenes, music, dance, and movies, the piece swiftly explains the nature of Atomic power, its history, and the present impasse. The second act demonstrates the progress that the discovery of Atomic power can bring to the world. It dramatizes the suggestions of some of the best minds of the age as to how it can be best controlled. Finally, it demonstrates dramatically what may likely come to pass if the destructive potential of Atomic power is loosed upon the world. It closes with the inevitable message that it is up to each and every one in the world to face and accept the responsibility that the discovery of Atomic power has thrust upon us."--From publisher's website.
