The Nuclear Express: A Political History of the Bomb and Its Proliferation
Thomas C. Reed, a veteran of the Livermore weapons laboratory in California and a former secretary of the Air Force, and Danny B. Stillman, former director of intelligence at Los Alamos, have teamed up in The Nuclear Express: A Political History of the Bomb and its Proliferation to show the importance of moles, scientists with divided loyalties and most important the subtle and not so subtle interests of nuclear states....The authors build their narrative on deep knowledge of the arms and intelligence worlds, including those abroad. Mr. Stillman has toured heavily guarded nuclear sites in China and Russia, and both men have developed close ties with foreign peers.Robert S. Norris, an atomic historian and author of 'Racing for the Bomb,' an account of the Manhattan Project, praised the book for remarkable disclosures of how nuclear knowledge was shared overtly and covertly with friends and foes. The book is technical in places, as when detailing the exotica of nuclear arms. But it reads like a labor of love built on two lifetimes of scientific adventure....Its wide perspective reveals how states quietly shared complex machinery and secrets with one another --New York TimesRanging widely over the subject, Messrs. Reed and Stillman assemble a mass of details, technical and political, to tell us how the world reached this parlous state….The authors are at their best when describing what they know well: the inner workings of these frightening devices --Wall Street JournalReed (former secretary of the air force) has joined with veteran Los Alamos physicist Stillman to write a complement to his earlier At the Abyss: An Insider's History of the Cold War. This book illustrates how nuclear technology and scientific knowledge was developed and distributed according to decisions made within fluctuating global geopolitical contexts. Even peaceful research and energy programs can be easily co-opted for military uses. While radical Islamic fundamentalism is clearly a dangerous threat to a weakened America, the authors emphasize how an ambitious and rising China has been quick to aid proliferation in its bid to become the world's leading power. Most important is the human element-who decides to use the weapons and why-and this is not always predictable or preventable. It is all very alarming, no doubt what the authors intended. Suitable for academic and public libraries-Library Journal--This grim warning from former nuclear weapons designer Reed (At the Abyss: An Insider s History of the Cold War) and former National Security Policy special assistant Stillman posits that terrorists ' will soon be able to assemble and place ... [an A-bomb in] any number of U.S. cities.' Reprising the history of the Bomb and the Cold War, the authors discuss the growth of the nuclear club (the U.K., France, Israel and China belonged by 1960; India and Pakistan joined in the mid 70s) and the impact of the Soviet Union s 1991 dissolution (leaving some 'twenty-seven thousand nuclear weapons... scattered about the formerly Soviet republics'). They also look at the free exchange of information in the 1990s between U.S. and Chinese nuclear scientists (Stillman was even able to tour their facilities), an arrangement that ended in 1999. Looking to the future, the authors explore several scenarios that might follow a nuclear explosion on U.S. soil, including governmental takeover by Muslim extremists and the possibility of China stepping in to disrupt U.S. financial power. With arguments for tougher international inspections and U.S. energy independence, as well as appendices on topics like weapon design and nuclear accidents aboard U.S. aircraft, these poker-faced experts provide a compelling and complete case --Publishers weekly --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
