The Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb (Paperback)

Not currently shipping from publisher – Subject to future availability


Controversial in nature, this book demonstrates that the United States did not need to use the atomic bomb against Japan. Alperovitz criticizes one of the most hotly debated precursory events to the Cold War, an event that was largely responsible for the evolution of post-World War II American politics and culture.
