Under the Cloud R.L. Miller 26. Januar 2000
Von Ruthe Betti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As one who has lived very close to this subject for nearly half a century, I find 'Under the Cloud' by R.L.Miller THE most exhaustive and comprehensive examination of our atmospheric nuclear testing program I have ever found. It's a facinating read, I've read it cover to cover, every single word, at least twice. The extensive fallout maps,the juxtaposing of 1950's social factors alongside the myriad of events (shots) provides the historian as well as the curious, with an insight not only to what we did,but why we did it. 'Under the Cloud' will make you feel like you're huddled in the trench 7000 yards from Ground Zero or having a cocktail in 'Doomtown' waiting for Apple II. If you only read one book on our Nuclear Testing Program, or can only have one book on this subject in your library,EVER, make sure it's 'Under the Cloud'. Order it now, but be advised,you're not going to put it down until the last page.

Makes nuclear physics exciting to read! 1. Dezember 1999
Von Alberta May - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is great for people with little knowledge about nuclear phyiscs and the Cold war. Miller writes in a way that makes you feel apart of the action. He gives great insight into the lives of the scientists, civilians, political leaders, and armed forces during nuclear testing in the 1940's. If science is a hard subject for you to understand, this book will enlighten you mind and brighten your hopes in understanding the subject.

Outstanding information, decent writing 20. Februar 2007
Von Randy Gibson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Richard Miller's "Under the Cloud" is probably a must-read for any of the late baby-boomers like myself who grew up during the Cold War but mostly after above-ground nuclear testing had ended. I was born in 1957 and for most of my life, the above-ground tests were a thing of the past and not really much discussed. But Miller's book reveals how I and most others of my age were probably victims of fallout to some degree. The book provides a very good sense of time relative to the major test series and documents much of the fallout movement and intensity. Miller's narrative style is easy to read but at times a just a wee bit melodramatic. It also gets confusing for the non-physicist as he tends to change units of measurement for radiation exposure constantly - in one test the exposure is in rads, then it's in roentgens, then it's in millicuries - and most of us don't know the relationship. But these criticisms are quibbles with what is for the most part an outstanding book and a very revealing look at something the government wouldn't want you to know. Along with Richard Rhodes' books on the nuclear program, this is a first-rate volume.

UNDER THE CLOUD 24. Mai 2006
Von S MEREDITH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I remember in the 50's and 60's being taught to get under my desk in case of a nuclear blast and to stay inside in case of nuclear fallout. Naturally this would only come from Russia and even our small town in Wyoming had a fallout shelter, we thought this was great as our state had several ICBM silos. After reading this book I was once again educated on the perils of nuclear fallout, NOT ONLY WAS IT ALL OVER THE USA, IT WAS MEASURED BY OUR GOVERNMENT AND AT NO TIME WAS ANYONE WARNED TO STAY INSIDE OR TAKE ANY PRECAUTIONS REGUARDING, FOOD, WATER OR LIVESTOCK. This is a crime against humanity and the fallout is still with us in the extremely high cancer rates that follow the fallout maps. The most incredible thing about this book is that it really happened and the American people were and still are totally uninformed. How many RADS were you exposed to? Check it out!

Decades of Nuclear testing 18. Januar 2007
Von Fred Joy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent and thorough account of the nuclear testing era in America, the South Pacific and the Soviet Union. The book's focus is the open air testing in Nevada, and details of those tests and fallout trails in the 50s and 60s. The book is written in a style that makes it fascinating, not bogged down with complex scientific jargon. It sidesteps to describe what was going on in American culture at the time, in the cities that were virtually unaware they were downwind of deadly exposure. Author explains how it all occurred, why, and the tragic legacy it has left.

Highly recommended for anyone. Should be of interest to all since as the book so accuruately reveals, we were all downwinders.
