Editorial Reviews


"Nuclear weapons are immoral. They are a crime against humanity. The political reality that nuclear war still remains an option for the United States and eight other countries is the paramount moral issue of our time. At the Nuclear Precipice: Catastrophe or Transformation? is a book of huge proportions on the world s most pressing issue. Richard Falk and David Krieger, as editors, have assembled in this volume the critical information needed to combat public complacency. A world free of nuclear weapons is possible - but only with educated, active, committed citizens with grassroots mobilization campaigns around the globe. At the Nuclear Precipice prepares us for this awesome task." - Rev. Dr. George F. Regas, Rector Emeritus, All Saints Church, Pasadena, CA

"To some, global nuclear disarmament it is dream. To others, it is a nightmare. This thoughtful and provocative book offers an alternative view. It describes persisting nuclear threats - from existing weapons or from their proliferation to additional states or terrorists - and offers specific practical ways to achieve a safer world that is free of such weapons. The book is an important contribution to one of the most important subjects of our times and will interest both experts and novices alike. The authors deserve to be heard." - Randy Rydell, UN Office for Disarmament Affairs

At the Nuclear Precipice:Catastrophy or Transformation

Edited by Richard Falk and David Krieger

This review is a preliminary recommendation based on several weeks of surveying the contents of and the contributors to the book.

It is the most comprehensive and broadly referenced work I have seen on all of the major aspects, misconceptions, and complacency of the dangers of the escalating proliferation or global "renaissance" of "nuclearism."

It will become an indispensable source for those who consider the global elimination of nuclear weapons to be their highest goal and most meaningful mission in life.
