Toward Nuclear Abolition : A History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement, 1971-Present, Paperback / softback Book

Toward Nuclear Abolition : A History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement, 1971-Present Paperback / softback

Part of the Stanford Nuclear Age Series series

Description

Toward Nuclear Abolition presents the inspiring, dramatic story of how citizen activists helped curb the arms race and prevent nuclear war. Examining events from 1971 to the present, the author continues the account he began in two earlier volumes, One World or None and Resisting the Bomb.

The book shows how pressure from the Nuclear Freeze campaign in the United States, the European Nuclear Disarmament campaign, and comparable movements around the world foiled the nuclear ambitions of hawkish government officials and forced them toward nuclear arms control and disarmament.

A leading historian and peace researcher, the author combines extensive scholarly research with a pathbreaking account of how the largest mass movement of modern times saved the world from nuclear annihilation.
