Appendix A--Core Technical Skills. Appendix B--List of Acronyms. Cover has slight wear and soiling. The Savannah River Site was constructed to produce the basic materials necessary in the fabrication of nuclear weapons, primarily tritium and plutonium-239. In support of these efforts, the Savannah River Laboratory was created. In August 1950, a top secret letter regarding the scope of work for the site included the directive that “new research and development facilities would be included at the main site or elsewhere to the extent required to support the work. Such facilities will be provided for the solution of process improvement and process development problems which may arise in connection with the work.” With this directive, the Savannah River Laboratory was created and soon became the second largest research facility for operator E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company.

Antony Cyril Sutton (February 14, 1925 – June 17, 2002) was a British and American economist, historian, professor, and writer. Sutton then received an economics professorship at California State University, Los Angeles and a research fellowship at Stanford University's Hoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace from 1968 to 1973. While at the Hoover Institution, he wrote the major study Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development (in three volumes), arguing that the West played a major role in developing the Soviet Union from its very beginnings up until 1970. Sutton argued that the Soviet Union's technological and manufacturing base, which was then engaged in supplying the Viet Cong, was built by United States corporations and largely funded by US taxpayers. Sutton published National Suicide: Military Aid to the Soviet Union, a condensed version of the third technology volume.
