Resisting the Bomb
Resisting the Bomb continues the story, begun in One World or None, of humanity’s efforts to avert nuclear destruction. Beginning with the catastrophic atmospheric nuclear weapons tests of 1954, the book describes the gradual development of a grassroots, worldwide movement for nuclear disarmament. Drawing upon massive research -- in peace movement files and in formerly top secret government records -- Resisting the Bomb provides a vivid panorama of the global antinuclear campaign, as well as startling revelations about the efforts of government officials to repress, contain, and, finally, accommodate to popular protest.
