bookshelves: nonfiction

Swedish diplomat and disarmament expert Hans Blix makes a rational, easy-to-understand argument for nuclear disarmament in this essay (not really long enough to be called a book). His distain for the second Bush administration's approach to the problem of nuclear and WMD proliferation is as clear as his concrete recommendations for non-violent approaches to worldwide nuclear disarmament.

Quotes J. Travis Liked

“For some twenty years the window that opened at the end of the Cold War has been allowed to hang flapping in the wind. It is high time that the five nuclear-weapon states take seriously their commitment to negotiate toward nuclear disarmament.”
Hans Blix, Why Nuclear Disarmament Matters

“Negotiations with Iran, especially, will not be easy under any circumstances, but I suspect that they might be somewhat less difficult if the nuclear-weapon states could show that their requests are part of a broader effort to lead the world, including themselves, toward nuclear disarmament. Preventing further proliferation is essential, but it is not a recipe for success to preach to the rest of the world to stay away from the very weapons that nuclear states claim are indispensable to their own security.”
