    I came to Hiroshima in America after reading Susan Neiman s Evil in Modern Thought in which she judged the 2 most manifest examples of 20th century evil to be the Holocaust and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima She hinted the cataclysmic destruction of Hiroshima was unnecessary but which nevertheless was carried out because the momentum of the times dictated it I thought I had a good

    This informative book examines how the government molded public opinion just prior to and after dropping the atomic bombs on Japanese cities The authors discuss the possible myth that millions of lives would be saved by utilizing the bomb, as well as how reporters and doctors were only able to report on accessible areas of the explosion The authors also look at the effect the bomb has had o

    I wonder if I should sit on this a while and craft atemperate review however, this book was written to fuel emotions, and so I will write from that heated place I can always edit this later, but I also know no one will probably read this, and since I m lonely and loveless and headed for an early grave, why not be honest over benign With the sword of Damocles hanging over all of us, and madmen morons in cha

    More or less well structured, thoroughly researched, truly compelling, highly interesting, somewhat terrifying, and properly dedicated to all survivors The world certainly has never been the same since an atom bomb exploded over Hiroshima, and the dawn of the Nuclear Era definitely requires examination and reflection, both of which are well provided by this detailed, investigative book You may disagree with it, bu

    Hiroshima in America is a book with the purpose to inform Through reading this novel you see the feelings that came from America during the time when the bomb dropped Mitchell and Lifton give you a lot of information about what happened in America, and how government officials tried to hide it from the public Their purpose was to inform you that a lot went on in America too, that Japan was not the only country with worries The theme of t

    I am glad that I discovered this 1995 book 15 years late If I had read it in 1995, I might have become discouraged about other World War II era atomic history books, and never read them The author is certainly very much in the camp with those who think we should not have dropped the atomic bombs on Japan in 1945 But, all in all, I m glad that I finally stumbled upon this book It was an uneven read, mostly I think because of the constant editoria
