Description

This tightly argued and profoundly thought provoking book tackles a huge subject: the coming of the nuclear age with bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, and the ways in which it has changed our lives since. Dr Heuser sets these events in their historical context, exploring whether they were indeed a turning point in WWII itself, and whether they were inherently different from incidents of conventional warfare with similarly massive death tolls. She then looks at the development of subsequent nuclear strategy around the world, before tackling key issues about the effect of nuclear weapons on modern attitudes to conflict, and on the ethics of warfare. Ducking nothing, she demystifies the subject, seeing 'the bomb' not as something unique and paralysing, but as an integral part of the strategic and moral context of our time.
