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

21 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 1,276 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 Chadwell Williams( Book )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now updated and expanded for the electronic age, this best-selling "how-to" manual introduces students, teachers, and anyone interested in history to the theory, craft, and methods of the discipline and provides a series of "tools" to help them read, research, and understand the past. The first part of the book is a stimulating 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 part guides readers through the "workshop" of history. Unlocking the historian's "toolbox," it reveals the tricks of the trade including documents, sources, footnotes, bibliographies, chronologies, and more. This section also covers issues of interpretation, speculation, professional ethics, and controversial issues such as plagiarism, historical hoaxes, and conspiracy theories. New for this expanded edition, part three of the book includes chapters on everyday history, oral history, material culture, public history, event analysis, and history on the Internet that will resonate with a new generation of readers. Written in an engaging and entertaining style, and filled with interesting examples, The Historian's Toolbox opens up an exciting world of historical research for anyone interested in the past. - Publisher
Klaus Fuchs, atom spy by Robert Chadwell Williams( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 842 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
