Death In Life
In Japan, "hibakusha" means "the people affected by the explosion" -- specifically, the explosion of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima in 1945. In this classic study, Robert Jay Lifton studies the psychological effects of the bomb on 90,000 survivors. Lifton sees this analysis as providing a last chance to understand -- and be motivated to avoid -- nuclear war. Book jacket.
