Remembering The Manhattan Project
Perspectives On The Making Of The Atomic Bomb & Its Legacy
Today, although the issue of nuclear weapons frequently dominates world politics, few are aware of the history behind its development. Part I of this book, comprised of papers from the Atomic Heritage Foundation’s Symposium on the Manhattan Project, recounts the history of this remarkable effort and reflects upon its legacy.
Most of the original structures of the Manhattan Project have been inaccessible to the public and in recent years, have been stripped of their equipment and slated for demolition. Part II proposes a strategy for preserving these historical artifacts for the public and future generations.
