Confronting the Bomb publishedWe are pleased to announce the publication of a new book, Confronting the Bomb: A Short History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement (Stanford University Press). This book is a much-abbreviated version of the scholarly, award-winning Struggle Against the Bomb trilogy and is designed to be accessible to a much broader audience. Like the trilogy, Confronting the Bomb provides a comprehensive history of public activism against nuclear weapons, and concludes that this citizens' movement has played a central role in curbing the nuclear arms race and preventing nuclear war.
Lawrence S. Wittner is Professor of History at the State University of New York/Albany, and a former president of the Peace History Society. He is the author of numerous books on peace and foreign policy issues, including the Stanford University Press trilogy, The Struggle Against the Bomb: One World or None (1993), Resisting the Bomb (1997), and Toward Nuclear Abolition (2003).
