Upcoming Event
Friday, February 21, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his compelling and important new study, Kaplan, the national-security columnist for Slate and the author of books including Dark Territory and The Insurgents, applies his deep reporting skills and impeccable historical research to a definitive history of American policy on nuclear war. Drawing on exclusive interviews and previously classified documents that reveal new details of key decisions and events, Kaplan examines how presidents from Truman to Trump have handled moments of nuclear crisis. His analysis of various doomsday scenarios illuminates the reality of the unthinkable in terms of mass destruction—and also demonstrates why nuclear arms are here to stay.
