Men Who Play God, by prominent British reporter Norman Moss, covered all aspects of the development, potential use, and socio-political ramifications of thermonuclear weapons, first tested by the United States in 1952. On its publication it was described as “compelling reportage, responsible, and highly readable” by Kirkus Reviews. Moss has since written two further books on nuclear weapons, The Politics of Uranium (1982) and Klaus Fuchs: The Man Who Stole the Atom Bomb (1987).
