Kai Bird - The Official Website

The two books likely to receive, and deserve, the most attention in the burgeoning collection on ''Oppie" are the popularization ''109 East Palace," by Jennet Conant, and the cradle-to-grave biography ''American Prometheus," done as a collaborative effort by Kai Bird and Martin Sherwin.
In some contrast to Conant's book, which has signs of a rush to the printer, is the joint effort by Tufts history professor Martin Sherwin and biographer Kai Bird, which had its origins in research that Sherwin began nearly 30 years ago. In some contrast to Conant's book, which has signs of a rush to the printer, is the joint effort by Tufts history professor Martin Sherwin and biographer Kai Bird, which had its origins in research that Sherwin began nearly 30 years ago. Sherwin had the inestimable advantage not only of more than a generation's worth of involvement with his subject, but of the fact that he was able to interview many, if not most, of those who figured importantly in Oppenheimer's life. Bird and Sherwin also incorporate in their book new evidence that has come to light concerning Oppie's equally complex and torturous political past, including documents that indicate that Oppenheimer, between 1938 and 1942, belonged to a secret or so-called closed unit of the Communist Party's professional section in Berkeley. But, to paraphrase an observation that Teller once made about the solution to a particularly sticky scientific problem: While we still may not know Oppenheimer, at least now we don't know him on a much firmer basis, thanks to Sherwin and Bird, and ''American Prometheus."
