about

So, you've always wanted to learn how to build an atomic bomb? You're inluck: Jim Ottaviani is not only a comics writer...he also has a master's degreein nuclear engineering! But even though it's not a complete do-it-yourselfmanual (assembly required, and plutonium is definitely not included), Falloutwill bring you up to speed on the science and politics of the first nucleargadgets.

Like its companion volumes, the focus of Fallout is on thescientists themselves -- in particular J. Robert Oppenheimer and Leo Szilard,whose lives offer a cautionary tale about the uneasy alliance between themilitary, the government, and the beginnings of "big science."
