Description

The Argonne National Laboratory was a quintessential product of the cold war--from the atom bomb to the energy crisis. This book traces Argonne's constant concern with reactors, basic research, and its relationship with the midwestern science community and equally constant search for identity and mission as public and political priorities shifted. 51 photos.show more

Review quote

"This history of Argonne National Laboratory, our nation's first national laboratory, is no dry recitation of dates and events, but a fascinating anecdotal description and analysis of the multifaceted interactions among scientists, administrators, and politicians... Instructive and highly entertaining." -- Jack H. Westbrook, Science Books & Filmsshow more
