About the author

Maryann Pasda DiEdwardo Ed.D.Artist, Author, Independent ScholarUltimately, voices of students teach language as they create rhythms of ideas based on personal reader response to history. Reading passages of historically focused writers creates voice. I invite you to dwell with me awhile to explore the depths of my studies on the use of history to teach voice. La cuarta "R" Writing has brought me To The realization that learning is based on the keen use of memory that we teach our students. I have written passages that inspire me to continue to write based on my own study of how memory can charged the mind to create writing. "All writers, whether they are youngsters the age of two, or the elderly, have vital voices in their selected language....writing, An art, Is a necessary endeavor, natural For The growth of human intelligence." (DiEdwardo, The Horse Keeper) the Fourth R is the result of five years of intensive personal scholarship as a teacher and a promoter of writing as a tool for learning to think. I have been lecturing on the topic of memory and testimonials found in Hispanic American Literature as a paradigm for writing.

Twenty-five years after its initial publication, The Making of the Atomic Bomb remains the definitive history of nuclear weapons and the Manhattan Project. From the turn-of-the-century discovery of nuclear energy to the dropping of the first bombs on Japan, Richard Rhodes’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book details the science, the people, and the socio-political realities that led to the development of the atomic bomb.

This sweeping account begins in the 19th century, with the discovery of nuclear fission, and continues to World War Two and the Americans’ race to beat Hitler’s Nazis. That competition launched the Manhattan Project and the nearly overnight construction of a vast military-industrial complex that culminated in the fateful dropping of the first bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Reading like a character-driven suspense novel, the book introduces the players in this saga of physics, politics, and human psychology—from FDR and Einstein to the visionary scientists who pioneered quantum theory and the application of thermonuclear fission, including Planck, Szilard, Bohr, Oppenheimer, Fermi, Teller, Meitner, von Neumann, and Lawrence.

From nuclear power’s earliest foreshadowing in the work of H.G. Wells to the bright glare of Trinity at Alamogordo and the arms race of the Cold War, this dread invention forever changed the course of human history, and The Making of The Atomic Bomb provides a panoramic backdrop for that story.

Richard Rhodes’s ability to craft compelling biographical portraits is matched only by his rigorous scholarship. Told in rich human, political, and scientific detail that any reader can follow, The Making of the Atomic Bomb is a thought-provoking and masterful work.
