From the Publisher
"York clearly writes with an insider's knowledge . . . telling a gripping story about a major event."
"York is uniquely qualified to analyze and to assess this historical decision."
"An important book, disclosing for the first time what went on behind the scenes. . . . An appendix contains the text, written in 1949 but only declassified in 1974, of the report of the General Advisory Committee to the Atomic Energy Commission, advising against a high-priority program to develop the bomb. . . . It is by itself worth the price of the book. It is a historical document of rare quality, brief, factual, and eloquent."
