The American atom : a documentary history of nuclear policies from the discovery of fission to the present, 1939-1984( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 1,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debate over nuclear policy, whether about nuclear weapons or nuclear energy, most often focuses on issues of the present or the future. The documents in this classic collection remind us, however, that the issues involved have a past. We follow the story of J. Robert Oppenheimer thorough his letters, observations of those close to the Manhattan Project and testimony to the Atomic Energy Commission. President Dwight Eisenhower's 1953 'Atoms for Peace' speech demonstrates how far back calls for nuclear sanity go, and the listing of nuclear-weapons accidents shows how dangerous it may be to ignore those calls
The historian's toolbox : a student's guide to the theory and craft of history by Robert C Williams( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is history and how do we know it? How has our understanding of history changed and developed over the years? And how do historians and students actually go about "doing" history? This book introduces students to the theory, craft, and methods of history and provides a series of "tools" to help them read, research, and understand the past ... This "how-to" book [provides] both a theoretical and practical overview ... The first half of the book is a ... philosophical introduction to the key elements of history - evidence, narrative, judgment - that explores how the study and concepts of history have evolved over the centuries. The second half of the book guides readers through the "workshop" of history. Unlocking the historian's "toolbox," the book reveals the tricks of the trade by offering concrete examples and practical advice on how to do history. These myriad tools include documents, sources, footnotes, arguments, bibliographies, chronologies, and many other items; they also examine professional ethics and controversial issues, such as plagiarism, historical hoaxes, and conspiracy theories. Together these two parts present a ... manual for the study, comprehension, and communication of history.-Back cover
Klaus Fuchs, atom spy by Robert C Williams( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1950 espionage case of Klaus Fuchs, who betrayed British and American atomic secrets to the soviet Union, touched off a witch hunt in the United States that led to the capture of the Rosenbergs and many other alleged spies. The case fueled the fires of national concern over communism, Soviet espionage, internal subversion, and security in the nuclear age. Robert C. Williams has tenaciously retraced Fuchs's personal story but has also established that his espionage was part of a much larger Soviet effort to penetrate and control British intelligence."--Jacket

A major figure in nineteenth-century American politics and reform movements, Greeley was also a key actor in a worldwide debate about the meaning of freedom that involved progressive thinkers on both sides of the Atlantic, including Margaret Fuller, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Karl Marx." "In the first comprehensive biography of Greeley to be published in nearly half a century, Williams captures Greeley from all sides: editor, reformer, political candidate, eccentric, and trans-Atlantic public intellectual; examining headlining news issues of the day, including slavery, westward expansion, European revolutions, the Civil War, the demise of the Whig and the birth of the Republican parties, transcendentalism, and other intellectual currents of the era."
