 OFFICE OF TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT (U.S. CONGRESS), The Effects of Nuclear War
OFFICE OF TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT (U.S. CONGRESS)
The Effects of Nuclear War
Washington, DC: Office of Technology Assessment - Congress of the United States, 1980. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Paperback. Ex-Library. B&W Illustrations; Ex-Library copy -from the Palo Alto City Library. This is an oversized paperback book. The book is in Very Good condition and was issued without a dust jacket.

The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The covers of the book have the noted library stamps along with one rectangular patch of tape residue and some light ground-in dirt. The text pages are clean and bright. "This assessment was made in response to a request from the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to examine the effects of nuclear war on the populations and economies of the United States and the Soviet Union. It is intended, in the terms of the Committee's request, to put what have been abstract measures of strategic power into more comprehensible terms." "In the immediate vicinity of a nuclear explosion, most casualties result from blast, heat and fallout during the first few days. The blast or heat from a one megatonne bomb - about 75 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb, and a size often found in nuclear arsenals - would kill almost all people, even those in shelters, out to a distance of two kilometres. Beyond ten kilometres the chance of death even for people without special protection would be very small. If the bomb is exploded at an altitude higher than the radius of the fireball from the explosion, as happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, local fallout is minimal. If exploded at or near the earth's surface, fallout lethal to unprotected people will be deposited downwind - most often to the east toward which prevailing upper atmospheric winds blow - for a distance of up to hundreds of kilometres. After a fortnight the radiation levels will have dropped to about one thousandth of what they were one hour after the blast.". Very Good .

Nuclear Facility Threat Analysis and Tactical Response Procedures
Springfield, IL: Charles C. Thomas Publisher, 1983. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. B&W Photographs; This book is in Fine condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean with the exception of some light toning to the spine and edges of the front and rear panels. "Security recommendations that address the potential threat of sabotage of a nuclear facility or attempted theft of special nuclear material are provided in this monograph. Model procedures for initial security reactions, threat analysis of alarms, and mobilization and tactical response to an actual threat are fully detailed." While a bit out-of-date as far as current available security features (notably cameras, pressure sensors, etc. ) the basic information is quite comprehensive regarding assessing threats and dealing with any that occur. "The 2011 accident at Fukushima was a wake-up call reminding the world of the vulnerability of nuclear power plants to natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. However, nature is not the only potential threat to nuclear facilities. They are also inviting targets for sabotage and terrorist attacks. A successful attack on a nuclear plant could have devastating consequences, killing, sickening or displacing large numbers of residents in the area surrounding the plant, and causing extensive long-term environmental damage.".

James Doolittle's 1942 air raid on Japan that was released the following year. It became a best-selling book. Considine was prolific, with a level of production few could match. "Considine's speed, accuracy, and concentration as a writer and his seemingly inexhaustible energy were legendary in the newspaper profession. He was known to work at two typewriters at one time, writing a news story on one and a column or book on the other. His colleagues at the Washington Post recalled that he wrote a column on the 1942 World Series in nine minutes--on a train with his typewriter on a baggage car and the conductor shouting, 'All aboard.' ," according to the Dictionary of American Biography.".

This particular item was published / revised just one month before the Cuban Missile Crisis. " The Cuban Missile Crisis, also known as the October Crisis of 1962 (Spanish: Crisis de Octubre) , the Caribbean Crisis or the Missile Scare, was a 13-day (October 16–28, 1962) confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union concerning American ballistic missile deployment in Italy and Turkey with consequent Soviet ballistic missile deployment in Cuba. The confrontation is often considered the closest the Cold War came to escalating into a full-scale nuclear war. In response to the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion of 1961 and the presence of American Jupiter ballistic missiles in Italy and Turkey, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev agreed to Cuba's request to place nuclear missiles on the island to deter a future invasion. An agreement was reached during a secret meeting between Khrushchev and Fidel Castro in July 1962, and construction of a number of missile launch facilities started later that summer.". Very Good+ .

DAVIS, ELMER
Two Minutes Till Midnight
Indianapolis, IN: Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc, 1955. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This book is in Near Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is some beginning bumping to the spine ends of the book covers. The text pages are clean and bright. There is some faded pencil marking to the front endpaper. The dust jacket has a couple of small edge nicks and tears along with one tiny triangular chip to the bottom spine end. There is some light rubbing to the spine and flap joints. "Two Minutes till Midnight is a companion piece to But We Were Born Free. In the earlier book Elmer Davis bade us live and fight and die for it. Brilliantly, passionately he calls us to greatness, to a clear realization that our acts as individuals and a nation will nobly save or meanly lose the last best hope of earth." "As Director of the Office of War Information, Davis recommended to President Roosevelt that Japanese-Americans be permitted to enlist for service in the Army and Navy and urged him to oppose bills in Congress that would deprive Nisei of citizenship and intern them during the war. He argued that Japanese propaganda proclaiming it a racial war could be combated by deeds that counteracted this. Davis has been termed one of the "unsung forefathers" of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, an all-Nisei combat unit in the war. Davis was also instrumental in loosening censorship rules that forbade the publication of images of dead GIs on the battlefield. Until late 1943, the U. S. Office of Censorship only permitted the media to publish images of blanket-covered bodies and flag-draped coffins of dead U. S. Soldiers, partly for fear that Americans would be demoralized if they had any graphic understanding of the human price being paid in the war. The government also restricted what reporters could write, and coverage was generally upbeat and bloodless.". Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket .
