    We should listen to her now!

    I think she points out the absurdity of spending time and other resources on nukes, while so many in the world have no food or medicine-should be read be all elected officials!

    A chilling wake-up call from a passionate physician

    When Dwight D. Eisenhower left the presidency in 1961, he issued a famous warning: "In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence . . . by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic process." Just how prophetic Eisenhower's words were is documented in passionate clarity by Dr. Helen Caldicott in The New Nuclear Danger. She demonstrates in overwhelming detail how the American military-industrial complex, with the willing help of the Congress and a series of administrations, ignoredthe end of the Cold War and seized on the fallout from 9-11 to cement its grip on our government, our lives, and our future. The U.S. is now spending far more on the military than we were during the height of the Cold War, much of that on new or "improved" nuclear weapons. Nobody doubts that Caldicott is a passionate advocate of arms reduction, de-militarization, and de-nuclearization. What gives this book enormous weight and impact is the immense amount of factual research she presents to support her views. The book is full of hard information about the giant companies that comprise the military-industrial complex, their leaders, and their financial, political and personal links with government. It's also replete with details about the grossly expensive and enormously threatening weapons systems currently being developed, many in contravention to the arms control treaties that once seemed to give us some hope of limiting or controlling the proliferation and spread of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. This book, more than anything I have read, makes sense of our foreign policy. If in fact Washington is as profoundly influenced by, in the pockets of, and, increasingly, advised and staffed at the highest levels by representatives of the arms industry,as Caldicott documents, then our aggressive stance toward the rest of the world, our apparent contempt for arms control treaties, and our go-it-alone attitude all make perfect sense. One of the most worrisome points Caldicott makes is that the billions of dollars currently being spent on the "Stockpile Stewardship and Management Program" are not simply keeping our thousands of nuclear weapons in working order, but are being used for the research and development of entirely new kinds of nuclear weapons, in contravention of arms control treaties. Another is her description of how the Bush administration's full-court-press towards its version of Star Wars is intensely destabilizing. She makes it frighteningly clear how easily our rush towards a (probably unworkable) missile defense system will be interpreted by our adversaries and even our allies as giving us a first strike capability. This, in turn, will almost certainly provoke a renewed arms race, with increased risk of accidental or deliberate nuclear war. If you believe that the existence of increasing numbers and types of nuclear weapons, in the hands of an increasing number of nations (of questionable stability), is the road to peace and prosperity, then you will hate this book. If, on the other hand, you are concerned about the direction the U.S. is moving in, abhor nuclear proliferation, and would like to see your children and grandchildren living in a truly safer and more secure world, then this book is a must. As Caldicott concludes, "We cannot continue to behave as primitive animals . . . conflict resolution and peacekeeping must be our new priorities." Robert Adler, author of Science Firsts: From the Creation of Science to the Science of Creation (Wiley, Sept. 2002).
