John McPhee’s Curve of Binding Energy – 50 Book Challenge

The Curve of Binding Energy
McPhee, John A.
One of McPhee’s earlier books. I think I picked it up from a blog recommendation somewhere. While McPhee makes a good argument for why we should be worried about the risks of nuclear weapons made from stolen materials, the world has gone 30 years without that event occurring. It’s probably worth thinking about why that should be. No obvious answer occurs to me.
