Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It Is Too Late
In his new book Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It Is Too Late
Joseph Cirincione surveys the best thinking and worst fears of experts
specializing in nuclear warfare and assesses the efforts to reduce or
eliminate these nuclear dangers. His book offers hope: global nuclear
arsenals are just one-quarter of what they were during the Cold War. Yet
can this trend continue, or are we on the brink of a new arms race — or
worse, nuclear war?
Joseph Cirincione is President of Ploughshares Fund, a global
security foundation. He is the author of hundreds of articles on
nuclear weapons issues, and books such as Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons
and Deadly Arsenals: Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Threats
. He is a member of Secretary of State John Kerry’s International Security Advisory Board and the Council on Foreign Relations.
