Summary
  • "The mortal danger of nuclear weapons in unique in its terrifying potential for devastation on an unprecedented and unimaginable scale. In this book, Sidney D. Drell and James E. Goodby - each with more than forty years' experience in national security issues both in public and private capacities - review the main policy issues surrounding nonproliferation of nuclear weapons. They address the specific actions that the community of nations - with American leadership - should take to confront and turn back the nuclear danger that imperils humanity."
  • "The nuclear genie, say the authors, cannot be put back in the battle. Our most urgent task as a nation today is to successfully manage, contain, and reduce the grave danger of nuclear weapons - whether in the hands of adversaries or friendly-states. This book hopes to stimulate active public dialogue on this important subject."--Jacket
