This well-reseaarched book, Volume II of a three volume series entitled The Struggle against the Bomb, describes the history and consequences of the nuclear disarmament from 1954 to 1970. It discusses the global resistance to nuclear programs, one such movement being Ban the Bomb. The book describes how governments faced the disarmament movements and how policies were changed. It also explains how the movement lost force around 1970. The author argues that the movement directed public sentiment against nuclear weapons, which helped prevent their being used as weapons of war after 1945. The book has extensive notes and a lengthy bibliography.
