NUCLEAR NIGHTMARES by Joseph Cirincione

January 4, 2014

Joseph Cirincione spoke about his book, Nuclear Nightmares, at Politics & Prose on Saturday, January 4, 2014.

There is a high risk that someone will use, by accident or design, one or more of the 17,000 nuclear weapons in the world today. Many thought such threats ended with the Cold War or that current policies can prevent or contain nuclear disaster. They are dead wrong -- these weapons, possessed by states large and small, stable and unstable, remain an ongoing nightmare. Cirincione's Nuclear Nightmares surveys the best thinking and worst fears of experts specializing in nuclear warfare and assesses the efforts to reduce or eliminate these nuclear dangers.
