Watch Tad Daley Speak About Apocalypse Never
Find below praises for Tad Daley's Apocalypse Never provided by Rutgers University Press:
Tad Daley has performed a truly rare feat. He doesn't offer the same tired survey of Iran and North Korea and the contemporary nuclear landscape. Instead, he convinces the reader completely that the only possible solution to the threat of nuclear annihilation is the abolition of nuclear weapons. Moreover, he actually charts a course for how we might get from here to there. Mr. Daley is an elegant writer, and his wonderful first book will enable both experts and regular folks to see, breathe, and believe in the dawn of a nuclear weapon-free world."—Daniel Ellsberg, former State Department and Defense Department official and author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers
"Apocalypse Never is an important and path-breaking book. Tad Daley doesn't just look at why we should strive to eliminate nuclear weapons, he demonstrates how to make it happen. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand how to turn a grand vision into a political reality." —John Podesta, President and CEO, Center for American Progress; White House Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton
"My film Apocalypse Now revealed how war corrupts the human soul. But the idea that we can have peace only through 'nuclear deterrence' degrades our entire civilization. With Apocalypse Never, Tad Daley shows us the path of escape." —Martin Sheen, The West Wing, Apocalypse Now; Golden Globe-Award and Emmy-Award Winning Actor
"In plain, understandable prose, Apocalypse Never makes a compelling case that the continued existence of nuclear weapons, regardless of their ownership, can lead to catastrophic disasters. A must-read." —Lt. General Robert G. Gard, Jr., (U.S. Army, Retired) and chair, Center for Arms Control & Non-Proliferation
"Few Americans know that more than forty years ago, in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, our country committed to eliminate its entire nuclear arsenal. In Apocalypse Never, Tad Daley traces the tortured history of this promise—and charts a course toward at last fulfilling it." —Michael Douglas, Wall Street, The China Syndrome; Academy-Award Winning Actor; United Nations Messenger of Peace.
"For those of us who think that freeing the planet from the specter of nuclear holocaust is the most important task before humankind, but also one that's nearly impossible to achieve, Tad Daley has drawn us a roadmap for the journey ahead. It demands no wild leaps of faith, no suspensions of disbelief. Mixing political sobriety with existential urgency and just plain damn good writing, Daley shows us the way." —Harold Meyerson, columnist, The Washington Post and editor-at-large, The American Prospect
"Finally, a book that explains in common sense language the process for bringing a nuclear weapon-free world from utopia to reality." —Congressman Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, 1997-present
"Tad Daley takes a penetrating look at the threat President Barack Obama calls 'the gravest danger to the American people,' and does so with clarity and integrity. Apocalypse Never details how the failed policies of the past have made the nuclear threat worse and how the only real solution is to move steadily towards eliminating the only weapons that can destroy the world. We would be wise to listen." —Joseph Cirincione, president, The Ploughshares Fund and author of Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons
"Americans have ignored two facts about nuclear weapons that Tad Daley brilliantly illuminates in historical perspective. First are the consequences of what J. Robert Oppenheimer called our use of atomic bombs against 'an essentially defeated enemy.' Second is our responsibility for promoting nuclear deterrence as a legitimate policy. We are thus largely responsible for the threat that nuclear weapons pose to the continued survival of humanity, and we are the only nation capable of successfully leading an effort to abolish nuclear weapons. Can we do it? Yes we can, and Apocalypse Never shows us how." —Martin J. Sherwin, University Professor of History, George Mason University; author of A World Destroyed and coauthor of American Prometheus, winner of the Pulitzer Prize
"While spiritual progressives seek to end all war, a major step is to end the threat of nuclear war. Tad Daley shows us that this is actually within our grasp, and an imperative for the survival of our planet and life itself." —Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor, Tikkun and chair, Interfaith Network of Spiritual Progressives
"Tad Daley makes a compelling case for eliminating nuclear weapons now, before they are used intentionally by a terrorist group or accidentally by a nuclear-armed nation. The weight of the evidence supplied in Apocalypse Never leads to an inescapable conclusion: the fewer nuclear weapons there are, the safer we all will be. And it makes it clear that our ultimate security depends on getting rid of these terrible weapons once and for all." —William D. Hartung, New America Foundation and coeditor of Lessons from Iraq: Preventing the Next War
