This volume provides a bibliographic and descriptive record of English language plays that deal directly and significantly with "the Bomb", a code term denoting all major aspects of the Nuclear Age that relate to atomic weapons - but not nuclear power. Descriptions of the plays are oriented toward their content as nuclear-age dramas. The descriptions are presented in chronological order, since the plays vary in nature and number according to the nuclear situation that existed in the real world. It includes a selective chronology of that evolving situation along with the landmarks of literature and journalism that it spawned. An index of playwrights concludes the volume.
