The diamond in the Bronx : Yankee Stadium and the politics of New York by Neil J Sullivan( )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 1,454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No sport has mattered more to Americans than baseball - and no team has had a greater impact on baseball than the New York Yankees. Now Neil Sullivan delivers a narrative worthy of this fabled subject, in this history of Yankee Stadium. The author knows baseball and city politics and the connection between the two. In these pages, he tells how Yankee Stadium is not just the most revered venue in American sports, but also a part of urban history."--Jacket

The Prometheus bomb : the Manhattan Project and government in the dark by Neil J Sullivan( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During World War II, the lives of millions of Americans lay precariously in the hands of a few brilliant scientists who raced to develop the first weapon of mass destruction. Elected officials gave the scientists free rein in the Manhattan Project without understanding the complexities and dangers involved in splitting the atom. The Manhattan Project was the first example of a new type of choice for congressmen, presidents, and other government officials: life and death on a national scale. From that moment, our government began fashioning public policy for issues of scientific development, discoveries, and inventions that could secure or threaten our existence and our future. But those same men and women had no training in such fields, did not understand the ramifications of the research, and relied on incomplete information to form potentially life-changing decisions. Through the story of the Manhattan Project, Neil J. Sullivan asks by what criteria the people in charge at the time made such critical decisions. He also ponders how similar judgments are reached today with similar incomprehension from those at the top as our society dives down the potential rabbit hole of bioengineering, nanotechnology, and scientific developments yet to come"--
