A collection of remarkable, modern photographs of the atomic bomb testing sites: Alamogordo, Trinity, Enewetak, and Frenchman's Flat. Also included is an informative essay on the history of the development of the Bomb and the evolution of Goin's project. "Peter Goin's remarkable photographs add a new and startling ingredient to our awareness of the American landscape: a glimpse of a possible future that is no less instructive, no less fascinating than any glimpse of a remote and turbulent past. They have a value of rare works of photographic art; let us hope they remain so."--J.B. Jackson.
Very Good. Crease with bump to upper corner of front wrapper with paper separating slightly at that location; some shelf wear and minor sun-fading.
