DescriptionThis volume provides a bibliographic and descriptive record of English language plays that deal directly and significantly with "the Bomb", a code term denoting all major aspects of the Nuclear Age that relate to atomic weapons - but not nuclear power. Descriptions of the plays are oriented toward their content as nuclear-age dramas. The descriptions are presented in chronological order, since the plays vary in nature and number according to the nuclear situation that existed in the real world. It includes a selective chronology of that evolving situation along with the landmarks of literature and journalism that it spawned. An index of playwrights concludes the volume.
ContentsA selective chronology of scientific, political, and cultural developments related to the nuclear age in general and nuclear drama in particular; dramas of the nuclear age - a descriptive list of English language plays; index of playwrights.
