“Empire and the Bomb explains why the U.S. commitment to nuclear dominance and its practice of threatening nuclear attacks have, in fact, been counter productive, increasing the dangers of nuclear war by spurring nuclear weapons proliferation.” -From the Introduction
Joseph Gerson is the Director of Programs of the American Friends Service Committee in New England---the principal Quaker peace organization in the United States. He is a leading figure in the U.S. peace movement. His previous books include The Sun Never Sets and With Hiroshima Eyes.
"As Americans, we need to face up to our own reliance on nuclear intimidation. This is an important book for Americans of all political stripes to read."
