Nuclear Physicists on the campaign trail. The mediatisation of the nuclear threat in early post-war United States (1945-1946)

Le Temps des médias n°4, printemps 2005, p.101-113

In the aftermath of Hiroshima, American nuclear scientists won access to the mass media. Conscious that science had become part of the Cold War, they lobbied for a better-informed public and a peace policy for the US. They demanded, among other, the establishment of permanent international scientific organisations and a permanent representation for the scientific community near the head of government. Initially successful, the influence of their movement decreased, efforts at mobilising public opinion proved ineffective and negotiations at the UN’s Atomic Energy Commission reached an impasse.
