From the use of Greek Fire to the awesome power of the H-Bomb, this book charts the dramatic development of explosives and their use in war and peace. Not a dry academic volume or complex scientific tract, but a brilliant piece of popular science. Laying the emphasis on the lives of the people involved, on the diverse uses of explosives and on their social and historical impact, the author relates a story of remarkable human endeavour. Many of those involved - Roger Bacon, Guy Fawkes, Alfred Nobel, Robert Oppenheimer - are famed world-wide.
