Each volume of Perspectives On Modern World History offers a fresh look - from multiple perspectives - at momentous events in world history. This volume introduces and provides a brief overview of the major factors that contributed to the dropping of atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Each volume opens with background information - including primary source material - covering the periods leading up to, during and after the event. Then, each volume offers an in-depth, multinational perspective on the controversies surrounding the event and the current implications or long-lasting effects. Each volume concludes with first-person narratives from people who lived through or were directly impacted by the event. Essays are compiled from a variety of sources and are carefully edited and introduced to provide context for readers unfamiliar with the historical event.
