A selection of books on the nuclear threat

Earlier this month, The New York Review of Books reviewed four books on the nuclear threat. You can read the review, "The Greatest Threat to Us All," by Joseph Cirincione and you should be able to find the books sometime this summer at the Grinnell College Libraries.

Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race by Richard Rhodes and published by Knopf. This book is "in process." You can request it through the catalog.

The Seventh Decade: The New Shape of Nuclear Danger by Jonathan Schell and published by Metropolitan. For other books by Jonathan Schell in the Grinnell College Libraries, including his 1982 book The Fate of the Earth published by Knopf, click here.

Deception: Pakistan, the United States, and the Secret Trade in Nuclear Weapons by Adrian Levy and Catherine Scott-Clark and published by Walker and Company.

America and the Islamic Bomb: The Deadly Compromise by David Armstrong and Joseph Trento and published by Steerforth Press.
