This is a research paper examining the decision to exclude the Soviets from the Manhattan Project. An historical overview of the time period is provided, and the writer then looks at what led up to this decision. The paper also discusses the implications of such a decision on future international relations and U.S. foreign policy.
From the Paper:'In the midst of atomic confusion during the development and years to follow of the atomic bombs "Little Boy" and "Fat Man" (starting as early as 1939), the United States government became entangled in mass debate over which (if any) foreign nations to include in the secrets of the Manhattan Project. After much consideration, the United States enlightened Britain with the diplomatic secrets, though clarifying the US dominance in the matter. However, the United States still deliberated over secret sharing with the Soviet Union and other nations, such as France. With the conclusion of the US to not share information of the atomic weapon with the Soviet Union, and later, the dropping of two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and later Nagasaki, the US conveyed a sense of distrust for the Soviets. This led to tense American-Soviet relations, which eventually brought about the Cold War."
