A half century after the bombing of Hiroshima, two distinguished writers look at the impact of the use of the A-bomb, and the supression of debate, on American life. Lifton and Mitchell question why Hiroshima still touches such a raw nerve, and explore the distortion and supression of information about the use of the bomb.
