On the 78th anniversary of the US dropping two atomic bombs on Japan, Truth Defence spoke to Peter Kuznick, Professor of History and Director of the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University, based in Washington D.C.

 

Professor Kuznick discusses how the historical record continues to be distorted to this day and what he feels the new Christopher Nolan film “Oppenheimer” gets right and wrong.

 

Professor Kuznick is the author and co-author of numerous books including co-authoring “The Untold History of the United States” with Oliver Stone, authoring the “Laboratory: Scientists As Political Activists in 1930s America” (University of Chicago Press), co-authoring “Rethinking the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Japanese and American Perspectives” (Horitsu Bunkasha, 2010) with Akira Kimura.
