This outstanding work relays both the science and the history behind the development of the atomic bomb as well as the social political ramifications of its use. It explains the science of the bomb as well as the social/political atmosphere in which it was 'born'.
It can be used in science for: science as inquiry; physical science; and science and technology. It addresses social studies themes such as: historical events; national and community institutions; the powers and challenges of governance; citizenship and civic ideals and practices; and global connections.
