Overview

This revised edition includes a new introduction that outlines the costs of operation Iraqi Freedom, details the companies profiting from the war and subsequent reconstruction, and chronicles the rampant conflicts of interest among members of the Bush administration who also have a financial stake in weapons manufacturing. After eight printings in the original edition, The New Nuclear Danger remains a singularly persuasive antidote to war and its horrific costs.

"Dr. Helen Caldicott has the rare ability to combine science with passion, logic with love, and urgency with humor. . . . At the dark dawn of another war without end, it is once again time to listen up as she sounds the global alarm." —Naomi Klein
