Providing succinct descriptions for each work, the author of this book analyzes literature and film related to nuclear themes, including nuclear warfare, ethics, and evolving mythologies. Included in the extensive source list are books about heroes and heroines, narratives of children who lived through the bombing of Hiroshima, poems about hope for nuclear peace, and short stories that reveal children’s views of the end of the world. Drawing on academic as well as popular literature, the author integrates the material in a documentation of post-nuclear mythologies that are positive, personal, and humanistic. Excellent bibiographies are provided for each chapter
