This review is from: American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer (Paperback)
I have read the other reviews and would just like to say that Oppenheimer is a subject that I have always found fascinating. It would take more than one one volume to assess and explain this very complex character. However, I now have a better understanding of the demons that both drove and plagued him.I must add that the way that the American Establishment comes across is that it was no better than that of nazi Germany and that back stabbing and unfounded gossip were the common points. The book is written in a style that I found rivetting.
