Front Cover
American Nuclear Society, 1982 - Technology & Engineering - 479 pages
Atomic Complex is a worldwide political history of the development of nuclear energy from its military use in the 1940s to its peaceful uses today. But, equally important, the book is also the personal memoir of Bertrand Goldschmidt, a man who was in the forefront of the effort to harness energy from the atom and who remains active today in his attempts to educate the public about the benefits of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Atomic Complex tells the story of the development of nuclear explosives and nuclear energy from the viewpoint of a scientist turned statesman.
