Preface:

At the end of this article is a lightly edited version of an essay on The Legacy of Nagasaki, first published in the De Moines Register on August 9, 1989, on the 44th anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki — my 41st birthday. Another essay, “The Legacy of Nagasaki, Redux,” is in progress.
