Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Garry Wills
reveals how the atomic bomb transformed American democracy, increasing the power of the presidency and redefining the government as a national security state. In Bomb Power: The Modern Presidency and the National Security State,
he draws a line from the Manhattan Project to the Cold War to the war on terror, fostering a state of war for sixty-eight years and counting.
