In the 1950s and 1960s, over 100 aboveground atomic bombs were exploded in the Nevada desert. Miller gives us absolutely arresting accounts of most of them. He describes the goals, the explosion, and the yield, and includes fascinating details, many times from contemporary accounts by news reporters, bomb droppers, and others. Miller saves most of the detail, interestingly given, for descriptions of the paths of the nuclear clouds and the locations and character of the fallout all over the country. He deals extensively with coverups relating to fallout effects on humans and animals. Supplementing his dramatic chronicles are appendixes and maps that summarize the tracks of selected bomb clouds, with listings of the communities affected by each test. This in-depth and readable history of atomic testing in the United States is highly recommended. Daniel LaRossa, Connetquot P.L., Bohemia, N.Y.
