In these presentations, six undergraduate students from Prof. Louise Young’s History 500 course “The Atomic Bomb in Japanese and American History” look back on the decision to drop the bomb. Their presentations will consider the moral responsibility of the scientists who developed the bomb; the question of whether Japan or the Soviet Union was the real target of the nuclear attack; and the ethics of nuclear deterrence.
