This book documents how The New York Times shaped public opinions that helped the U.S. government develop atomic weaponry. The book reveals how The Times' science writer also was on the payroll of the U.S. Army, how The Times obscured the impact of radiation, and how the enormity of U.S. nuclear weapons tests in the Pacific has been shrouded in secrecy for decades despite an amount of testing from 1946 to 1962 that equates to the detonation of about 8,580 Hiroshima-sized bombs.
