Summary: The "fallout" from the nuclear arms race with its atmospheric tests, civil defense drills, superpower confrontations, and ever-present specter of mass annihilation was not limited to strontium-90 and other deadly substances: it also includes the mental and imaginative world of an entire generation, adults and children alike. It produced not only nightmares, worried conversations, and activist campaigns but also a diverse array of cultural artifacts, ranging ...show more from poems, novels, and paintings to popular songs, slang, movies, advertisements, radio shows, and TV specials. Without understanding this larger impact of the nuclear reality, large swaths of American thought and culture in the half century after 1945 become opaque and incomprehensible.

The essays range widely, from a discussion of the shattering impact of the news of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on a warweary nation in 1945 to ruminations on the 1995 Enola Gay controversy, when a proposed fiftieth-anniversary commemorative exhibit of the atomic bombing of Japan at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History generated bitter controversy.

The book makes clear that even though the Cold War and the superpower nuclear arms race have ended, images of nuclear menace, and troubled memories of the atomic past, continue to stir uneasily in the American consciousness and to provide a fertile theme for mass culture productions, from video games to Hollywood films to best-selling thrillers. Fallout offers a fresh, readable, and timely look at a central shaping force in American culture over the past half century. ...show less
