Abstract

This paper examines the ways in which the 20th century was dominated by the presence of nuclear weapons, by showcasing the major focal points in a chronological sequence. The examination reveals the ways in which nuclear weapons changed the world and provides us with concrete examples of the tragedy that surrounds their use, the damaging results of experimental tests, and the ways in which it can quickly escalate into war. Recalling these concrete examples is critical when examining current international affairs.
