Welcome To Mars : Science and the American Century, 1947-1959 Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A story of weird science, strange events and even stranger beliefs, set in an age when the possibilities for human development seemed almost limitless.

Welcome to Mars offers a fascinating, detailed chronology of where it all went wrong.

In his own inimitable style, Ken Hollings draws upon newspaper accounts, advertising campaigns, declassified government archives, old movies and newsreels from the period to depict an unsettled time in which the layout of suburbia reflected atomic bombing strategies, bankers tried hallucinogens and brainwashing was all around.
