Published in 1946, this collection of essays by leading atomic scientists, including Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Harold Urey calls for international cooperation to prevent an arms race involving atomic weapons. The authors point out that there is no defense against atomic weapons. Albert Einstein argues for a supranational organization with its own military power, and the weakening of national military forces. Phillip Morrison discusses the devastation he saw when he went to Japan after the atomic bombs were dropped. Leo Szilard questions whether an inspection system will stop an arms race. Overall, the authors present relevant information and varied perspectives on nuclear energy, and they call for peace and international action.
