Fallout: J. Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and the Political Science of the Atomic Bomb

236 pages!

You want to learn how to build an atomic bomb? Then this is the book for you! Jim Ottaviani is not only a comics scriptwriter - he also has a masters degree in nuclear engineering! Though not a complete do-it-yourself kit (plenty of assembly required, and batteries - not to mention plutonium! - are definitely not included!), Fallout will bring you up to speed on the science and politics of the first nuclear gadgets. On a more serious note, Fallout tells the story of the price the scientists - and future generations - paid for a swift end to World War II.
