Reviews

"Fallout Shelter deals in depth with one of the most material, most local, and most peculiar manifestations of the Cold War in the U.S.-the bomb shelter. David Monteyne provides an excellent model for assessing the anonymous architectural agents, past and present, that affect human action." -Annabel Wharton, author of Building the Cold War: Hilton International Hotels and Modern Architecture
