The first authoritative account of the part played by Britain in the development of the first atomic bombs, the political and administrative problems, and including the (then) current issues of the independent British deterrent, Anglo-American relationships, French nuclear policy, and relationship between science and government. Also included is a paperback copy of Margaret Gowing's lecture for the University of Southampton, "How Nuclear Power Began" from 1987.
