"A scrupulously edited contemporary record of Gordon Dean's work as member and then chairman of the AEC, 1950- 53. It sheds new light on such great events as the decision to build the H-bomb, the transfer of weapons to military custody, and the decisions of 1951-52 for vast expansion of weapon-making capacity."--McGeorge Bundy
