Abstract

Book Reviews credibility as a spokesperson for America's atomic energy policy. Despite the public humiliation, Oppenheimer continued to make presentations across the country, where he discussed the benefits of nuclear energy. In April 1963, President John F. Kennedy helped restore Oppenheimer's image when he honored the physicist with the Enrico Fermi Award, which recognized his work in the fields of atomic research and advanced physics. Hunner's book is well written and thoroughly researched. Although the work provides readers with a concise history of an American physicist who initiated the dawn of the Atomic Age, it also serves as a significant addition to American West historiography by examining how the Manhattan Project had a transformative effect on the western United States during the mid-twentieth century.
