After the Bomb: Civil Defence and Nuclear War in Britain, 1945-68

After the Bomb looks at the evolution in post-war Britain of the policy of civil defence. It draws on recently declassified documents to show that though anti-nuclear campaigners didn’t succeed in banning the bomb, they did play a significant part in exposing flaws in the central tenet of this policy, namely that a nuclear war could be survived.
