EDWARD TELLER The nuclear physicist signed this copy of his book Better A Shield Than A Sword: Perspectives on Defense & Technology Book inscribed and signed: "To Danny/Butts/Edward Teller" on flyleaf. 6½x9½. Title: Better A Shield Than A Sword: Perspectives on Defense & Technology. Pages: 257. Author: Edward Teller. Place: New York, New York. Publisher: The Free Press. Year: 1987. Hardcover with dust jacket. Edward Teller (1908-2003), called the father of the hydrogen bomb, was born in Hungary and educated in Germany before fleeing the Nazis. He worked on the Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic (fission) bomb, but was already looking forward to the even greater power which might be unleashed by nuclear fusion. Teller influenced U.S. Presidents of both parties with his advocacy of nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, and the Strategic Defense Initiative. Teller made headlines in 1954 when he testified that he, personally, did not trust nuclear physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer enough to renew his security clearance. As a result of this hearing, Oppenheimer, another one of the pioneering scientists behind nuclear weapons, had his United States security clearance revoked. In his memoirs, Teller reflected on the use of nuclear weapons to end WWII: "I deeply regret the deaths and injuries that resulted from the atomic bombings, but my best explanation of why I do not regret working on weapons is a question: What if we hadn't?"
