By Prof. F. M. Szasz, 6 X 9 size, 233 pages, illustrated with numerous black and white photos, soft cover. The New York Times reviewed The Day The Sun Rose Twice as follows: In this tightly focused, lucidly written and thoroughly researched book, Professor Szasz, a professor of history at the University of New Mexico, describes the events, personalities and scientific processes that led to the detonation of the first atomic bomb in an isolated stretch of New Mexican desert. It was further reviewed by the Los Angeles Times: May be the definitive account of the days and hours leading up to the first nuclear explosion in history, and the legacy it left. The author vividly reconstructs the story: the industrious atmosphere of the scientists and technicians; the grave considerations of those making key decisions; the sense of wonder, and twinges of conscience, at what had been achieved. The Day The Sun Rose Twice was selected by the Western History Association as the 1986 winner of an award for the outstanding book on the twentieth-century American West.
