Reno. 1986. University Of Nevada Press. 1st Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 0874171075. 232 pages. hardcover. keywords: Politics America Atomic Testing History. inventory # 17865. FROM THE PUBLISHER-On January 27, 1951, the first atomic weapon was detonated over a section of desert known as Frenchman Flat in Southern Nevada, providing dramatic evidence of the Nevada Test Site's beginnings. Fifty years later, author A. Costandina Titus reviews contemporary nuclear policy issues concerning the continued viability of that site for weapons testing. Titus has updated her now-classic study of atomic testing with fifteen years of political and cultural history-from the mid-1980s Reagan-Gorbachev nuclear standoff to the authorization of the Nevada Test Site Research Center. In the second edition of Bombs in the Backyard, Titus deftly covers the post-Cold War transformation of American atomic policy as well as our overarching cultural interest in all matters atomic, making this a must-read for anyone interested in atomic policy and politics.
