Abstract:

"Fallout offers the reflections and observations of historian Paul Boyer on the fascinating and complex impact of the bomb in American life from the special perspective of a person who experienced and participated in the events and movements about which he writes. Boyer provides us with a rich understanding of nuclear reality in American thought and culture after 1945." "The essays range widely, from a discussion of the shattering impact of the news of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on a war-weary nation in 1945 to ruminations on the 1995 Enola Gay controversy, when a proposed fiftieth-anniversary commemorative exhibit on the atomic bombing of Japan at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History generated bitter controversy."--BOOK JACKET.
