The Bomb’s Early Light

October 13, 2010

Richard Rhodes is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author or editor of twenty-three books including The Making of the Atomic Bomb, which won a Pulitzer Prize in Nonfiction, a National Book Award, and a National Book Critics Circle Award.

The Manhattan Project, conceived as a race to beat Nazi Germany to the atomic bomb, devised a way to release essentially unlimited energy. That breakthrough, unique in human history, transformed international politics, made world-scale war suicidal, and continues to threaten and challenge relations between nation-states down to the present day.
