Reseña del editor: "British Nuclear Culture" is an important survey that traces the tensions between the more familiar official narratives and the under-researched, unofficial narratives that emerged especially strongly in the late 1950s.The author expounds the notion that nuclear culture was a pervasive and persistent aspect of British life, particularly post 1945; an idea that is illustrated through the detailed analysis of various primary source materials, such as newspaper articles, government files, fictional texts, film, art, music and oral testimony. Many of these sources have never been published before and so the book offers original research and introduces many unfamiliar source materials to students in the field.Chronologically arranged, the book reflects upon, and returns to, a number of key themes throughout, including nuclear fear; government policy, rhetoric and 'nukespeak'; individual experience in the nuclear age; and the relationship between nuclear science and democracy. There are also individual case studies, a detailed timeline, a further reading list and an extensive bibliography included.
