Entering the nuclear age. Atomic diplomacy: from beginning to parity

   Counting on nuclear weapons being banned in the distant future, Robert Oppenheimer, one of their creators, said that if they were to ever become a part of warring countries’ military arsenal, humanity would curse both the weapons and their creators. He was mistaken. It turned out that nuclear weapons could serve both as a means of attack and protection. Unfolding the dramatic landscape of hidden rivalry between two leading powers in the anti-Hitler coalition during the Second World War and the new global configuration after Hiroshima, the author takes us, step by step, back to the roots of the nuclear arms race. He examines the gigantic, top secret programme in which the US aimed at being the first to create a weapon of mass destruction to attain world domination. The book also shows another side to the multi-layered process, embodied in the efforts of Soviet science and diplomacy during testing times so as not to give the American project global military and technological supremacy and to ensure the way towards parity.
For specialists in the field of international relations and a wide circle of readers interested in this pressing current issue.
