about

The Nuclear Present is a guide to English-language literature on nuclear weapons and related topics in this precarious environment. In over 800 entries divided by subject, Burns gives substantial, often critical annotations of books and U.S. government documents published for the most part between 1984 and 1991. Useful for both undergraduates and advanced scholars, The Nuclear Present focuses on the history and effects of nuclear weapons, nuclear strategy, the US-Soviet arms race, proliferation, the Strategic Defense Initiative, the peace movement, and many other areas. With a nuclear chronology, a periodical guide, and indexes. The Nuclear Present supplements The Atomic Papers with no overlap.
