A well-argued warning on the diverse dangers posed by nuclear-armed nations, this book examines a range of incidents, each of which may have come close to initiating a nuclear war. The incidents range from false alarms of missile attacks by both the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War to Israel’s 2007 attack on a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor. The author, an investigative U.S. journalist, then addresses the tensions between a nuclear-armed Israel and an Iran aspiring toward nuclear weapons production, arguing that those tensions threaten to reshape the political landscape of the Middle East in ways that could lead to a nuclear conflict. The final chapter focuses on why nuclear weapons have not been used since 1945 and the issues surrounding a global elimination of nuclear weapons. The title is also available as an e-book.
