Summer Reading List: The Making of the Atomic Bomb

The Making of the Atomic Bomb

The UC Berkeley Summer Reading List is an annual compilation of recommended (though not required) readings suggested by Cal faculty, staff, and students as a welcome to incoming freshmen and transfer students.

The Making of the Atomic Bomb

A remarkable history of the discovery of nuclear fission, which shows how discovery becomes technology, and how technology is interconnected with society, culture, politics, personalities, and (in this case) war.
