Project 2 2 Research Plan Research Question : In what ways were the effects of the atomic bomb similar and different regarding American and Japanese civilians? Secondary Sources : Harper, J. (2007). Secrets Revealed, Revelations Concealed: A Secret City Confronts Its Environmental Legacy of Weapons Production. Anthropological Quarterly, 80 (1), 39-64. Retrieved from Malloy, S. L. (2012 ). 'A Very Pleasant Way to Die': Radiation Effects and the Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb against Japan. Diplomatic History, 36(3), 515-545. doi:10.1111/j.1467- 7709.2012.01042.x The historical context was that of pride and trust in one’s government, but also the fear of war and radiation. The citizens of Oak Ridge were still proud of their heritage concerning their instrumental work on The Manhattan Project, but despite this, must face a lasting legacy of toxified environments and illnesses. Harper (2007) states that a citizen named Emily suffers from multiple ailments attributed to lingering radiation, and that “testing revealed significantly high levels of arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and nickel in her blood.” However, because of the ethos of silence cultivated during that period of history, few others from Oak Ridge have come forward about similar ailments. This culture of secrecy may also have affected the decision to drop the bomb.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
