Additional Information

Rather than relying on archives and published sources, Gusterson (anthropology and science studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) interviewed people who took part in the birth of nuclear warfare: weapons scientists, policy makers, and activists at the Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories, and in Russia and Washington, D.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Author Hugh Gusterson is a nuclear freeze activist with an unusual anthropologist's background, so it's not surprising his People Of The Bomb: Portraits Of America's Nuclear Complex takes a dual approach to analyzing how the nature and presence of the nuclear bomb has penetrated to American identity and psyche. His fifteen years of field research at weapons labs across the country incorporates this plus analysis of popular movies, political speeches, media focus on war, and intellectual circles alike to provide a hard-hitting analysis of the impact of the nuclear complex on American perspective.
