Rezensionen
'...a most rewarding and fascinating read...' - Royal Air Force Historical Society

'this thoughtful book is an excellent study on a turbulent period of Britain's nuclear history and veritable trove of material on all aspects of the story. It deserves to be diligently mined by readers for a long time to come.'

- Matthew Grant in Contemporary British History

'a valuable addition to the literature, and a valuable resource for any student of the period.'

- Melissa Smith, British Journal for the History of Science

'Moore has written an admirably clear and deeply-researched account of British nuclear policy across this era. By rendering such an intricate and at times arcane subject in straightforward, uncluttered and authoritative prose, Moore has made a substantial contribution to the literature on postwar nuclear policy.'

- Matthew Jones, University of Nottingham, UK
