CHOICE Review

Editors Gordin and Ikenberry (both, Princeton Univ.) have compiled an outstanding collection of essays presenting new perspectives on the historical and cultural significance, both then and now, of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on the 75th anniversary of the attack. They bring together leading scholars from diverse disciplines, including international relations, political theory, cultural history, and science and technology, providing an interdisciplinary approach that sheds light on the profound influence of nuclear weapons today and on the evolving legacies of Hiroshima across the globe and over time. The essays, first presented at international conferences held between 2015 and 2017, are organized into three sections: "Decisions and Choices," covering the actions and thinking of individuals and groups in war and peace before and after August 6, 1945; "Movements and Resistances," discussing how Hiroshima triggered political movements and changes in the international order; and "Revolutions and Transformations," analyzing how the legacies of Hiroshima shaped intellectual frameworks used to define history and politics. This is not a collection of disparate essays; they work together to illuminate a rich portrait of the Age of Hiroshima and its global significance. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readership levels. --Mark D. Ericson, University of Maryland University College
