Auteur: Caldicott, Helen
Titel: The New Nuclear Danger
Sub titel: George W. Bush's Military-Industrial Complex
In her uncannily well-timed new book, world-reknowned anti-nuclear activist Caldicott looks at the indebtedness of the current Bush administration to the nuclear arms industry and warns of the enormous dangers inherent in allowing weapons manufacturers to dictate foreign policy. And, it should hardly need to be said, the notion of nuclear survival is a fantasy, and nuclear victory an oxymoron. "Dr Helen Caldicott has the rare ability to combine science with passion, logic with love, and urgency with humor....At the dark dawn of another war without end, it is once again time to listen up as she sounds the global alarm." [Naomi Klein] Now updated wih a new 2004 introduction detailing the costs f the war we are waging, the names of the companies profiting from the war and the reconstruction and administration of post-war Iraq, along with their ties to the administration, The New Nuclear Danger and Helen Caldicott remain the most persuasive antidote to war available.
