What People are Saying About This

Jimmy Carter

The end of the Cold War may have freed the world from the immediate threat of a nuclear war, but thousands of nuclear weapons remain, many still on alert, aimed at specific targets in Russia and in the United States. Policymakers and the public should read this book, and act.
