The transuranium people the inside story by Darleane C Hoffman ( )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this highly interesting book, three pioneering investigators provide an account of the discovery and investigation of the nuclear and chemical properties of the twenty presently known transuranium elements. The neutron irradiation of uranium led to the discovery of nuclear fission in 1938 and then to the first transuranium element, neptunium (atomic number 93), in 1940. Plutonium (94) quickly followed and the next nine elements completed the actinide series by 1961. Investigation of the chemical properties of the actinides was followed more recently by chemical studies of the first three tr

The Atomic Energy Commission under Nixon : adjusting to troubled times by Glenn T Seaborg ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this revealing book, Nobel Laureate Glenn T. Seaborg tells what it was like to be chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission during the Nixon presidency. As in his two other highly-praised historical books (Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Test Ban and Stemming the Tide: Arms Control in the Johnson Years), Dr. Seaborg draws extensively from his meticulously kept diary, enabling the reader to be a fly on the wall during meetings with Nixon, Henry Kissinger, and other key policy makers. During the Nixon period, the debate over how to deal with the Soviets on nuclear issues and arms control remained central. On the domestic scene, efforts to promote and regulate the growth of a nuclear power industry were complicated by a rising tide of environmental protest. Dr. Seaborg described how the Atomic Energy Commission, shorn of much of the political immunity of its early years, sought to maintain its programs and ultimately its very existence, while besieged by competing pressures from the White House, other government agencies, antinuclear activists, industry, state governments, and Congress. The Atomic Energy Commission Under Nixon provides valuable information and insights for those interested in nuclear matters, in the governing style and personality of Richard Nixon, and in how the U.S. government functions and fails to function
