The New Nuclear Danger: G.W.Bush's military-industrial
by: Dr. Helen Caldicott
First published in 2002, Dr. Caldicott's work explores the military
industrial complex in the United States. She identifies the corporations
and the weapons of mass destruction that, have and, are being
manufactured. This highly detailed book provides the reader with hard
facts and statistics so that we come to understand with clarity the horrible
destructive power of weapons that have no sensible reason to exist, except to
make massive profits for greedy corporations. She provides the rationale
for treaties, and describes the game of power politics that has been waged
to avoid such agreements so that the 'merchants of death'
can continue to manufacture weaponry of mass death. Dr.
Caldicott is the founding member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, a
non profit organization. She has been named as one of the Most Influential
Women of the 20th Century, been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and has
honorary degrees from 19 Universities. She provides us with a clear vision
why all nuclear weapons should, and must be destroyed.
