Claiming that nuclear arms are "no longer useful deterrents, but dangerous weapons that could annihilate the human race" (introduction), this book details the suffering caused by nuclear weapons at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Three sections of the book cover effects on the landscape, humans, and society. The last section focuses on the need for abolition of nuclear armaments. Dramatic photographs illustrate the opening, and numerous tables and statistics appear throughout the work. The book contains a detailed chronology of events related to bomb damage from 1945 to 1978, and an extensive bibliography.
