Baker & Taylor
A compelling foray into the world of nuclear armament argues that we are on the brink of a second and much more dangerous nuclear arms race than the one experienced throughout the Cold War, and presents steps that can be taken, despite recent world government action, to make the correct choice on nuclear weapons.

Argues that a second and much more threatening nuclear arms race is on the horizon, and despite recent world-government actions, there are choices yet to be made

We continue to face a choice with respect to nuclear weapons – either to move safely towards their elimination or to remain their victim. A forty-year effort to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons is breaking down, and the likely acquisition of these weapons by terrorist groups is growing. In Fatal Choice, Richard Butler, a well-known and respected voice on the subject of nuclear weapons, argues that we are poised on the verge of a second and much more threatening nuclear arms race than the one experienced throughout the Cold War. This threat is clearly reflected in nuclear weapons development by India, Pakistan, Iraq, and North Korea. The revival by the Bush administration of missile defense will not deal with the problem but worsen it. Butler outlines the steps that can be taken to give effect to the right choice on nuclear weapons.
