Review Text

  • By Raymond G. Wilson on April 30, 2001

    Few people realize that over the fifty years following 1945 there were created and stored in world arsenals the equivalent of 70 Hiroshima bombs every day of every one of those fifty years. On August 6, 1945 Naomi Shohno was a science student at Kyushu University, 380 kilometers from his home in Hiroshima. He returned home on the afternoon of August 9 at Koi station of west Hiroshima to see if his home and family were safe. Hiroshima was gone. Under the hot August sun, there was no sound; it was a city of death. The Hiroshima experience has been Shohno's life work. He explains it well in this 150 page paperback, eye-opening and well-received by my students as one of their textbooks. The world has seen many changes since its 1986 publication but the basic danger remains and no one yet has found the solution. (The American Press called this event, "The story of the century.") An excellent book to accompany the LEGACY OF HIROSHIMA is ALL THINGS NUCLEAR - 2005 by James Warf. These two books are well worthy of consideration in teaching about our nuclear past and future.
