Pressestimmen"The Highway of the Atom is a tour de force and belongs on the same shelf with Kenzaburo Oe's Hiroshima Notes, John Hersey's Hiroshima, and Richard Rhodes' The Making of the Atomic Bomb. The author has read everything there is to read, spent countless hours in archives and visited many of the places and people referred to in the book, though he never lets his research dominate the story. The book contains so many telling phrases and telling insights that the reader will want to concentrate not only on what van Wyck is saying but also on how well he is saying it." John O'Brian, Department of Art History, Visual Art, and Theory, University of British Columbia
