Rosen Pub Group
The atom bomb is the father of weapons of mass destruction. Discoveries concerning the enormous amount of energy that could be harnessed from the atom opened up a world of possibility. World War II forced the U.S. to follow one of those possibilities to its violent conclusion, ending WWII but ushering in the age of WMDs. This thought-provoking book will help students look at current world situations in a more historical context.
