TITLEAtomic Culture: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
PUBLISHERUniversity Press of Colorado
CITYBoulder, CO

This volume samples expressions about atomic energy in American culture from the 1940s to the early twenty-first century. Its chapters form a useful collage of topics that include atomic comics, the mushroom cloud as kitsch, nuclear imagery in film, uranium mining in the American West, the neutron bomb, nuclear landscapes, and the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). The editors' goal is to provide a structure for the relatively new field of atomic culture. Each chapter contains many references.
