Before the Fallout: From Marie Curie to Hiroshima
Diana Preston (au)
On Dec. 26, 1898, Marie Curie announced the discovery of radium and observed that “radioactivity seems to be an atomic property.” Some 47 years later, her insight was on horrific display as “Little Boy” exploded over Hiroshima. This is the epic story of the intervening half century, during which a quest to unravel the secrets of the material world revealed the knowledge of how to destroy it, and an international scientific adventure transmuted overnight into a wartime sprint for the atomic bomb. This book chronicles a fascinating human chain reaction of scientists, leaders, and ordinary citizens whose discoveries and decisions forever changed our lives. It compels us to consider the threats and moral dilemmas we all face in our ever-dangerous world. Ill.
