"For six years I have been putting together a body of basic imagery to render visible the Bomb and all its works. I want to open up a window on the Bomb with photographs and interviews so people will be able to view the nuclear arsenal at its source. My purpose is to give the collection imagination something accurate and graphic to hang onto as it strives to come to terms with the Bomb's reality"--Preface.

What can photographs reveal about Canada’s nuclear footprint? The Bomb in the Wilderness contends that photography is central to how we interpret and remember nuclear activities. The impact and global reach of Canada’s nuclear programs have been felt ever since the atomic bombs dropped on Japan in 1945. But do photographs alert viewers to nuclear threat, numb them to its dangers, or actually do both? John O’Brian’s wide-ranging and personal account of the nuclear era presents and discusses over a hundred photographs, ranging from military images to the atomic ephemera of consumer culture. His fascinating analysis ensures that we do not look away.

Rocket States crosses the disciplines of Cold War Studies, American Literature, American Studies and Cultural Studies. The particular attraction of this study lies in the combination of its range-close textual and visual analysis of the correlations between land and weaponry, set firmly within its political and cultural contexts-with its unique analytical approach. The book offers a synthesis between history, theories of technology, theories of space, popular culture, literary study and military science. It illuminates a variety of literary texts from key writers and thinkers such as Pynchon, Stephen King, Norman Mailer, and Tom Wolfe, while also invoking figures like Nikola Tesla, James Webb, Batman and Ronald Reagan. Organised topographically, according to how missile technology manifests itself differently in particular locations, Rocket States's geographical targets are Colorado, Kansas, Cape Canaveral and New York, variously titled 'Excavation', 'Preservation', 'Evacuation' and 'Transmission'. It advances through these states roughly chronologically, beginning in the late 1940s and early 1950s and coming to an end in the first part of the 21st century. Collignon's argument is concerned with identifying the recurring figures and fantasies of the Cold War: the dome or parabola as sheltering techno-form; the fictions of total security adapting to constantly changing targeting strategies; gadget love; closed, freezing worlds. As such, Rocket States analyses by what processes the Cold War is frequently literalised in its weapons installations and how these facilities, in turn, shape dreams of containment, survival, escape and techno-supremacy.

“Pleeaze! Tell me that bomb isn’t live!” is a follow on from Nick Crozbys’ successful first book, “Pleeaze tell me that wasn’t a teacher”. Like its predecessor it continues in a humorously written, anecdotal style and is based on the multifarious events and incidents the author, Nick Crozby, has been privileged to encounter, enjoy and occasionally suffer during his long career in education. The events related were real but the names of all those “involved” have been changed to preserve anonymity. “Pleeaze! Tell me that bomb isn’t live” describes how it was a working visit to Saudi that led to a totally unexpected change in direction to his and his wife’s newly established teacher recruitment company. That in turn led to exciting, sometimes difficult but always interesting experiences and events in countries across the world. Helping set up new schools in Eastern Europe, Bahrain and China, advising and helping to staff and improve established schools in the Caribbean, Africa and Hong Kong all as a result of an initial visit to the Middle East. The scariest times were as a result of the Gulf Wars and visits to Kuwait, Qatar, Dubai in the aftermath. With his well-chosen stories and incidents Nick not only entertains but informs the reader about the nefarious, colourful behind the scenes goings on in the international educational world. The dialogue is colourfully illustrated with many carefully recalled situations, some sad, others naughty and some very moving. Incidents and characters seemed to follow him during his time in teacher recruitment just as they had during his teaching career and these too are humorously related.

When the American Bar Association recreated the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg on the fortieth anniversary of their execution, the jury acquitted the "mock Rosenbergs," finding that in today's courts they would not have been convicted of espionage. The 1950s trial of the Rosenbergs on charges of "Atomic Spying" and "stealing the secrets of the Atomic bomb" was a major event of Cold War America, galvanizing public opinion on all sides of the question. Secret Agents presents essays by lawyers, cultural critics, social historians and historians of science, as well as a reconsideration of the Rosenbergs by their younger son, Robert Meeropol. Secret Agents gives new resonance to a history we have for too long been willing to forget.
