'The Science of Bombing illustrates how science was exploited by the Royal Air Force in the Second World War through the creation of Bomber Command's Operational Research Section, and represents a far more detailed examination of this important subject than anything previously attempted. The author also challenges some of the more enduring critiques of the Commander-in-Chief of Bomber Command, Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Harris, and demonstrates that he was in fact a very innovative and flexible commander.' -- Sebastian Ritchie, Air Historical Branch, Royal Air Force

aWarming up to the Cold War is a tightly focused and beautifully written study of Canadian reactions to the myriad "emergencies" of the early Cold War period. Robert Teigrob argues - entirely persuasively - that the Gouzenko affair, the nuclear build-up, and finally, the Korean War were felt keenly by ordinary Canadians, so much so that they drove cautious government officials towards the alliance with the United States. Teigrob's revisionist discoveries are extremely important and restore agency to Canadians in the early postwar period. The book impressed me at every level and I enjoyed it immensely. The author has done us a great service in packing so much provocative analysis into such an accessible book.'-Robert Wright, Department of History, Trent University
