AUTHORPerry, William J.
TITLEMy Journey at the Nuclear Brink
PUBLISHERStanford Security Studies
CITYStanford, CA

In this book, former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry chronicles his career as he influenced U.S. nuclear weapons policy during the administrations of three U.S. presidents, beginning with the Cuban Missile Crisis and ending with the reduction of nuclear weapons during President Bill Clinton's administration. He reflects on the events that led him to believe that nuclear weapons endanger society rather than securing it. The methodical memoir reveals Perry as more of a technocrat than a politician, and it emphasizes his efforts to prevent nuclear war.
