Product description

Review

Very well written. . . . Both far-ranging and thorough.--SpeedReaders.info --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

Originally published in 1985, By the Bomb's Early Light is the first book to explore the cultural "fallout" in America during the early years of the atomic age. The book is based on a wide range of sources, including cartoons, opinion polls, radio programs, movies, literature, song lyrics, slang, and interviews with leading opinion-makers of the time. Through these materials, Boyer shows the surprising and profoundly disturbing ways in which the bomb quickly and totally penetrated the fabric of American life, from the chillingly prophetic forecasts of observers like Lewis Mumford to the Hollywood starlet who launched her career as the "anatomic bomb". In a new preface, Boyer discusses recent changes in nuclear politics and attitudes toward the nuclear age. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
