A subarctic mine on the far eastern shores of Great Bear Lake provided Canadian uranium for the bombs detonated over Japan in August 1945. However, a complete history of Canada's involvement in the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb has been thwarted by restrictions on classified documents.
Peter C. van Wyck is an associate professor in the Department of Communications Studies at Concordia University.

Editorial Reviews

"The Highway of the Atom is far more than a history of colonial deceit and ethical disaster; it is also a wake-up call for Canadians who need to know that the deceit and the disaster are continuing right now." Topia
