This edited volume provides new historical studies on diverse aspects of physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer’s life and times. The authors were all participants in a conference on Oppenheimer held in 2004 at the University of California, Berkeley. The essays are organized under the following topics: Oppenheimer as a physicist, the communist question, the Soviet comparison, postwar politics, cultural resonances, and the public Oppenheimer. The authors, who have all produced biographical works on Oppenheimer and his times, provide new insights about that complex and influential scientist.
