Description:
New book, 418 pages. This is the full story of how an exhilarating quest to unravel the secrets of the material world produced the knowledge of how to destroy it. And how a scientific adventure shared openly between nuclear physicists from different nations transmuted into a secretive wartime race for the ultimate weapon of mass destruction between Germany and America. Focussed on the intertwined, all too human lives of scientists like Marie Curie, Einstein, Rutherford, Heisenberg and Bohr whose compulsive curiosity led, ultimately, to the horror of Hiroshima. Drawing on new interviews with those who were there, this book helps us make better sense of the threats and moral dilemmas posed by nuclear weapons for our society today.
