The Doomsday Machine : Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner Paperback / softback
From the legendary whistle-blower who revealed the Pentagon Papers, the first insider expose of the terrifying dangers of America's hidden, seventy-year-long nuclear policy. At the same time former presidential advisor Daniel Ellsberg famously took the Pentagon Papers, he also took with him a cache of top-secret documents related to America's nuclear program in the 1960s.
Here for the first time he reveals the contents of those now-declassified documents and makes clear their shocking relevance for today. The Doomsday Machine is Ellsberg's account of the most dangerous arms build-up in the history of civilisation, whose legacy - and proposed renewal under the Trump administration - threatens the very survival of humanity.
