A major addition to the history of nuclear arms control. Seaborg, a distinguished scientist, was appointed chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission by President Kennedy (here presented favorably). The author played a significant role in the events leading up to the 1963 treaty banning atmospheric nuclear tests. The book contains many lengthy quotations from his private journal.
