Baker & Taylor The granddaughter of Enrico Fermi, a key participant in the Manhattan Project, presents a pictorial survey of the making of the atomic bomb, containing many never-before-published photographs and snapshots of the many aspects of the Project. Library of Science Alt.
Book News Fermi (granddaughter of Enrico) and Samra have assembled a remarkable documentary of the military and civilian workers and scientists at Oak Ridge, Hanford, and the Olympian heights of Los Alamos, the pinnacle of science wisdom. The project was regimented, abominable to the families, and a model of effective if not efficient concentration of effort to achieve a monumental R&D task quickly. A time of giants: Oppenheimer, Bohr, Wheeler, Fermi, Groves (the fascistic general that forced it to work). Great book about a great phenomenon. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
