Speaker: Tad Daley
Author of the new book, "Apocalypse Never: Forging the Path to a Nuclear Weapon-Free World"
Fellow, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War
Former speechwriter and policy advisor for Rep. Dennis Kucinich and Sen. Alan Cranston
On the wings of a brand new era in American history, "Apocalypse Never" makes the case that a comprehensive nuclear policy agenda from President Obama, one that fully integrates nonproliferation with disarmament, can both eliminate immediate nuclear dangers and set us irreversibly on the road to abolition. In jargon-free language, Daley explores the possible verification measures, enforcement mechanisms, and governance structures of a nuclear weapon–free world. Most importantly, he decisively argues that universal nuclear disarmament is something we can transform from a utopian fantasy into a concrete political goal.
