A Nuclear Winter's Tale: Science and Politics in the 1980s (repost)

A Nuclear Winter's Tale: Science and Politics in the 1980s (Transformations: Studies in the History of Science and Technology) by Lawrence Badash
The MIT Press | July 10, 2009 | English | ISBN: 0262012723 | 424 pages | PDF | 2 MB

The nuclear winter phenomenon burst upon the public's consciousness in 1983. Added to the horror of a nuclear war's immediate effects was the fear that the smoke from fires ignited by the explosions would block the sun, creating an extended "winter" that might kill more people worldwide than the initial nuclear strikes. In A Nuclear Winter's Tale, Lawrence Badash maps the rise and fall of the science of nuclear winter, examining research activity, the popularization of the concept, and the Reagan-era politics that combined to influence policy and public opinion. Badash traces the several sciences (including studies of volcanic eruptions, ozone depletion, and dinosaur extinction) that merged to allow computer modeling of nuclear winter and its development as a scientific specialty.

Will Terrorists Go Nuclear?

A leading expert on terrorism and a senior adviser at the RAND Corporation, Jenkins (Unconquerable Nation) addresses the contentious issue of nuclear terror in this exhaustive study that seeks to separate what we fear from what we might reasonably expect. The author traces the debate over nuclear terror from the Cold War to its contemporary nexus with al-Qaeda, noting that 9/11 renewed all the old debates and significantly altered our perceptions of what was plausible. Furthermore, the Bush administration's saber-rattling and the relentless media coverage exaggerated the threat and left the nation intentionally terrified. While acknowledging al-Qaeda's efforts to obtain nuclear weapons, Jenkins points out that the evidence confirms… ambition, not capability or the knowledge to fabricate a nuclear device. Finally, the author invites the reader to assume the role of president in a frightening scenario that begins with a nuclear blast in Manhattan. Jenkins's ambitious goal seems to be not to downplay the nuclear threat posed by terrorists but to get Americans to address it logically and dispassionately; his thoroughly documented and carefully reasoned study is an important step in that direction.

Publisher: McFarland & Company | ISBN: 0786405872 | edition 200 | CHM | 227 pages | 1,05 mb

When German physicists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman first split the uranium atom in 1938, they might have little imagined the potential power their experiments had unleashed. Since the United States successfully detonated the first atomic weapons in 1945, the entire world has lived in fear of annihilation. Technological advances in weaponry and, importantly, their delivery systems have only heightened the sense of dread. Yet, since the end of World War II, world governments have been unable to agree on a strategy for nuclear disarmament. This led first to the Cold War and ultimately to the proliferation of nuclear weapons throughout the world. This work examines the nuclear question within the framework of international law. The advent of the nuclear age and its impact on postwar peace and law is first covered. This is followed by analyses of the initial United Nations disarmament initiatives and the reasons they were doomed from the start. The globalization of the Cold War, the expansion of the nuclear arms race, and the START treaties and the legacy of 1970s-era dtente efforts in the years leading up to the end of the Cold War are then detailed. How the United Nations reacted to the end of the Cold War and the prospects for disarmament in the 21st century is the subject of the concluding section.

The Four Faces of Nuclear Terrorism

The Four Faces of Nuclear Terrorism

The Four Faces of Nuclear Terrorism
Center for Nonproliferation Studies (2004-01-01) | ISBN: 1885350090 | 378 Pages | PDF | 5 Mb

The Four Faces of Nuclear Terrorism is the result of a two-year study by the Monterey Institute's Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the motivations and capabilities of terrorist organizations to carry out devastating attacks using stolen nuclear weapons, to construct and detonate crude nuclear weapons known as improvised nuclear devices (INDs), to release radiation by attacking or sabotaging nuclear facilities, and to build and use radiological weapons or "dirty bombs." These "four faces" of nuclear terrorism are real threats that current U.S. policy fails to take into account. Because Washington has no guidelines for directing scarce resources to where they would have the greatest impact, this book merits the earnest attention of policy makers and the public. As Senator Richard G. Lugar, Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee, and former Senator Sam Nunn of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, write in the foreword to the book, "This thought-provoking and well-researched book…should be read by policy makers and anyone interested in a better understanding of the threats we face today." Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Potter maintain that there is a greater likelihood today than any time in the past three decades that citizens will experience one of the four types of nuclear terrorism. They urge the United States and its international partners to take immediate steps to prevent the most catastrophic form of nuclear terrorism, detonation of nuclear weapons, and to reduce the consequences of the most likely, dispersal of radiation with dirty bombs. The book outlines the priority tasks necessary for the U.S. and other governments, and stresses the need to educate the public on the risks of radiation exposure and to help psychologically immunize citizens against fear of radiological attacks.
