The mortal danger of nuclear weapons is 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 twenty 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 bottle. 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.
