Spring is in the air (well, almost, anyway) and a new crop of books has just arrived. Here are some of the Monitor book critics' favorite March picks.

2. "The Age of Radiance," by Craig Nelson

of

From Wilhelm Röntgen's 1895 discovery of x-rays to the aftermath of the Fukushima meltdown, award-winning author Craig Nelson ("Rocket Men" and "The First Heroes") offers a clear, colorful history of the atomic age. Nelson presents the movers and shakers of the era – everyone from Marie and Pierre Curie and Robert Oppenheimer to Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan – even as he explains the process of unlocking the secrets of the atom and what that has meant to our lives. You can see the Monitor's full review of "The Age of Radiance" here.
