This article provides an overview of recent research developments in the field of nuclear history, focusing on Western European and Northern American research perspectives and topics. The analysis of these developments reveals under-researched areas which merit more focus from humanities and social sciences scholars in order to better understand the role of nuclear matters in twentieth century history and their implications for the twenty-first century. The areas which require more intensive research include: nuclear waste, the role of social scientists in constructing the nuclear age and the shifting narratives of nuclear vices and virtues.
