Reviews
"On the Home Front [is] a work of history dispassionately told, thoroughly footnoted, the literary equivalent of a nuclear explosion."--Michael E. Long, National Geographic
"On the Home Front should be read by everyone concerned with public policy and the environmental issues that dominate this postmodern world." --William L. Lang, Western Historical Quarterly
"[Gerber's] skill in reconstructing the story of Hanford's environmental ravages has given us a book that can both alarm and instruct." --Journal of American History
"A welcome contribution to the growing historiography of the Cold War. . . The questions raised by Gerber about the role of experts and of secrecy in a democracy will hopefully attract the serious attention they so earnestly deserve."--American Historical Review
