Delayed in order to include contributions by Joseph Rotblat and Kenzaburo Oe, two recent Nobel Peace Prize winners, and the haunting photographs of Yosuke Yamahata, as well as a completely new cover design, Hiroshima's Shadow will at last be available this spring.Any American who reads this collection of essays will be compelled to fundamentally reevaluate their understanding of the history and politics underlying the decision to use atomic weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This unsettling volume draws together a distinguished group of international historians and writers who through careful research have pierced the rationales for the atomic bombing presented by members of the Truman Cabinet following the annihilation of both cities and their civilian populations. Important elements of this research became a central part of the highly controversial 1995 Enola Gay exhibit at the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum which was first censored and then ultimately canceled.
