Here is the full text:

American Prometheus is the first full-scale biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer, “Father of the Atomic Bomb,” the brilliant and charismatic physicist who led the effort to capture the sun’s formidable fire for his wartime nation. Immediately after Hiroshima, he became the most famous scientist of his generation, one of the emblematic figures of the 20th century, the embodiment of modern man comparing the consequences of scientific progress.

He was the author of a radical proposal to place international controls on atomic materials – an idea that is still relevant today. He opposed the development of the hydrogen bomb and criticized the Air Force’s plans to wage infinitely dangerous nuclear war. In the now almost forgotten hysteria of the early 1950s, his ideas were anathema to powerful advocates of massive nuclear buildup and, in response, Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Lewis Strauss (Downey), the Superbomb attorney Edward Teller (Safdie) and FBI Director. J. Edgar Hoover worked behind the scenes to get a hearing panel to conclude that Oppenheimer could not be trusted with American nuclear secrets.

We follow him from his early education at the turn of the 20th century at the Ethical Culture School in New York, through personal crises at Harvard and Cambridge universities. Then to Germany, where he studied quantum physics with the most accomplished theoreticians in the world; and in Berkeley, California, where he established, in the 1930s, America’s leading school of theoretical physics, and where he turned a dark mesa into the most powerful nuclear weapons laboratory in the world and where he was himself. transformed. And finally, at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, which he directed from 1947 to 1966.
