In this collection of essays, historians survey the Hiroshima story
from the American decision to drop the first atomic bomb to the
recent controversy over the Enola Gay exhibit in Washington, DC.
The first essay surveys the literature on the atomic bombing of
Japan, while the second and third essays evaluate the decisions
that led to that event. The remaining essays discuss how the
Japanese and American people have remembered Hiroshima in the years
since the end of World War II. They emphasize the construction of
an official memory of Hiroshima, the challenge posed by alternative
or counter-memories, and the tension between history and memory in
the Hiroshima story. The collection aims to unite up-to-date
scholarship by diplomatic historians with the interest in memory
that has emerged as part of the new cultural history.
