Jonathan Skinner reviews Nuclear Fear: A History of Images by Spencer R. Weart. This book “boldly sweeps from the futuristic White City of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and the discovery of radioactivity in 1896 through Hiroshima and Star Wars,” according to Science.
Skinner is a retired statistician and Friends of APL board member.
