As a 37-year old assistant to an Atomic Energy Commissioner in 1951, at the outset of a public career already spanning four decades, Gerard Smith journeyed to Eniwetok to witness an atmospheric nuclear test. He later characterized the experience as 'having a look at Hell.' He has dedicated his career to the cause of enhancing understanding of the risks posed by nuclear weapons and to seeking practical, non-utopian measures to limit these risks. In this volume an extraordinary group of similarly committed men reflect upon their joint endeavors to foster nuclear understanding and restraint.
