"This is a powerful book that raises important issues for our understanding of how dealing with the atomic bomb shaped postwar science". -- Morris F. Low, Science

Suffering Made Real is the story of the first attempts to understand how radiation affected the survivors of the atomic bomb and subsequent generations of Japanese. Lindee argues that Cold War politics and cultural values shaped this research.

"(Suffering Made Real) is a story of how scientific research and policy were affected by the politics, values, and anxieties of the cold-war era". -- Chronicle of Higher Education

"The story Lindee tells is haunting. She skillfully uses a diverse collection of sources to create a textured portrait, and her many insights are provocative as well. In short, this is an important book and one well worth the read". -- Daniel Lee Kleinman, Contemporary Sociology

"(Lindee) covers the first decade of the ABCC's existence with wisdom and grace. She has a keen eye for the ways in which science was socially constructed, an important theme in this book". -- Lawrence Badash, Journal of American History
