Since publishing our first book as Los Alamos Historical Society Publications in 1974, we have brought out more than forty titles and in 2012 updated our imprint to Bathtub Row Press. In 2008 the Society added academic articles to its publishing output in what is called the Nutshell Series, literally “history in a nutshell.” Bathtub Row Press supports the Los Alamos Historical Society’s mission to preserve, promote, and communicate the remarkable history and inspiring stories of Los Alamos and its people for the community, for the global audience, and for future generations.

Neil Gaiman

Some nice bookish holiday listening!

"Even huge Charles Dickens fans may not know that A Christmas Carol is organized in five stanza-like sections called "staves." They might not know the author's only surviving "prompt" copy of the book, that is, Dickens's own annotated version used for live readings, is held at the New York Public Library. But it's without a doubt that Neil Gaiman gives one of the greatest deliveries of the classic holiday tale. Made up to resemble a nineteenth century man by Jeni Ahlfeld, the author was transformed for a performance at the New York Public Library, and his engaging reading captured the liveliness of Dickens' prose. And so, as is our NYPL holiday tradition, we're sharing Gaiman's delightful performance of A Christmas Carol. We hope you enjoy it as part of your family tradition too."

"While Oak Ridge retains many of its original World War II workers housing, Los Alamos does not. The need to attract talented scientists to the Los Alamos lab in the 1950s led to the construction of many post-war neighborhoods that replaced quickly constructed wartime housing. As a result, the rustic homes on Bathtub Row—so named because it held the only homes in town with the luxury of a bathtub—are some of the only remaining homes used during World War II, yet they pre-date the project."

A good article about our recent publication, Doomed to Cooperate!

“The primary reason why we didn’t have a nuclear catastrophe was the Russian nuclear workers and the Russian nuclear officials. Their dedication, their professionalism, their patriotism for their country was so strong that it carried them through these times in the 1990s when they often didn’t get paid for six months at a time.” – CISAC senior fellow Siegfried Hecker describes the history of "lab-to-lab" cooperation between American and Russian nuclear scientists during the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
