The article focuses on various issues on Lewis Strauss, chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission in the U.S. Accordingly, Strauss had taken controversial positions on the Dixon-Yates contract, the Oppenheimer case and the nuclear test ban. He viewed his official past with a complacence that hardly endeared him. Strauss' insistence on rebutting all witnesses as they came nettled Senators.
