Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety

PSR highly recommends Eric Schlosser's new Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety. This work of journalistic investigation closely examines the dangers of the nuclear age by highlighting how mistakes and misinterpretation nearly caused nuclear detonation during the cold war. PSR is gravely concerned about the potential of an accident causing inadvertent detonation of a nuclear weapon, and has warned for years about the many health and environmental impacts of nuclear war. PSR has launched a campaign to highlight the global impact of even limited nuclear war activity.
