Chicago: Educational Foundation for Nuclear Science, 1976 Near Fine; see scans and description. Chicago: Educational Foundation for Nuclear Science,1976. The October, 1976 issue of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, that being Volume 32, Number 8. The famous and historic Doomsday Clock - shown on each cover or title page since 1947, two years after the publication's inception - here shows the time to be nine minutes of midnight as of late 1976. Quarto, illustrated staple-bound wraps, 48 pp. Near Fine; original addressee label on front cover, tiny strip sot on rear cover, no other flaws. Even the inevitable page paper toning is almost nonexistent. Contents immaculate. A handsome example; see all scans. Established in 1945 by biophysicist Eugene Rabinowitch and physicist Hyman Goldsmith in response to a correctly-perceived demand for nuclear information at the time by the general public, The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is without doubt the most historically significant non-technical publication on the subject of "'global security and public policy issues related to the dangers posed by nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction, climate change,[2] and emerging technologies and diseases". Hence, over the years, BAS has become a geopolitical instrument, rather than a nuclear watchdog alone. Feature articles in this vintage 1976 issue: Nuclear Sabotage - with five tables of incidents; Peaceful Explosions; Nuclear Energy Illusions & Realities; Nuclear Responsibility - by President Jimmy Carter; Numbers Game; B-1 Bomber - Still Flying or Defunded?; Congressional Buck-Passing; Public Policy for Solar Heating and Cooling; Britain and the Bomb (bbok). See scan of contents. Contributors include Bernard T. Feld; Jimmy Carter; Fred C. Iklé; F.A. Long; Michael Flood; Alan S. Hirschberg; Samuel H. Day, Jr.; Barry R. Schneider; Elizabeth Young. Very, very scarce as the original monthly softcover issue. Ships in a new, sturdy, protective box - not a bag. LPR31
