Analyze the attached essay by Barton Bernstei on the

atomic bombings. Bernstein

provides five or six theories of howthe Japanese could have been brought to

surrender prior to the dropping of

the atomic bombs. Assess the merits of each ofthese based on

the information provided and any outside research you care to conduct. Analyze

the strength of his argument and the evidence

he provides to determine what course of action Truman should have taken. In othe

words, are

revisionists” correct in their assessment that the atomic bombings

were not done for military purposes? ls

Bernstein correct that

Nagasaki

was unnecessary?

Note #2: When discussing each theory/alternative, make sure
