The legacy of the atomic bomb and its development continues to be explored in a number of different settings, and this website from UCLA's Asian American Studies Center is a powerful reminder of the far-reaching effects of this technology. The site was developed by Dr. James N. Yamazaki and the Center, along with funding provided by the Paul I. Terasaki Foundation. Dr. Yamazaki was the lead physician of the U.S. Atomic Bomb Medical Team assigned to Nagasaki to survey the effects of the bomb, and the site contains a variety of his writings and observations, including the complete text of his 1995 book "Children of the Atomic Bomb". On the right hand side of the homepage, visitors can view images and video which discuss various aspects of the atomic bomb's legacy. Moving on, the "Images and Resources" area contains links to sites that deal with the nuclear disarmament and divestment movement both at the University of California and other institutions. Overall, the site is quite moving and may come in handy in a variety of classroom settings.
