      All of this could easily have been put inside of a single essay, maybe even a single paragraph in a single essay Pass if you must.

      Masco s book is riveting I don t often say this about academic books If you have any presupposition that this is another boring military history book, think again Instead of giving us a technological history of the bomb or a political history of what people did with it, Masco wants to understand the lasting psychosocial and infrastructural effects the bomb had on the US, and he shows how taking this perspective challenges the assumption that America won the Cold War.In the first section of his b [...]

    4. Melissa says:

      Joseph Masco has written a thought provoking ethnography of the US aging nuclear arms program and its effects on the psyche of the American public This worthy study can get a little too heavy on its theoretical framework to the point of obscuring the ethnographic data that is powerful on its own Thinking about the long term fallout of the Manhattan Project on the public and the landscape is an important contribution, as are Masco s insights into how the a bomb has reconfigured socio cultural rel [...]

    5. Louis says:

      This book is a trip You will never think of New Mexico, the United States, and the Manhattan Project in the same way again Masco, in his history and ethnography of the consequences and the lasting impact of the Manhattan Project on the people and landscape of New Mexico, shows us how scientific experimentation with nuclear physics upends our commonsense distinction between past and present, simply because the durability of nuclear debris exceeds the temporal scales that humans are used to think [...]
