Ebook description:

Shortlisted for the 2018 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction Finalist for The California Guide Award in Nonfiction The San Francisco Chronicle’s Better of 2017 Listing In These Instances “Greatest Books of 2017” Huffington Publish’s Ten Glorious December Books Listing LitHub’s “5 Books Making Information This Week” From the legendary whistle-blower who revealed the Pentagon Papers, an eyewitness exposé of the hazards of America’s High Secret, seventy-year-long nuclear coverage that continues to today. Right here, for the primary time, former high-level protection analyst Daniel Ellsberg reveals his surprising firsthand account of America’s nuclear program within the 1960s. From the remotest air bases within the Pacific Command, the place he found that the authority to provoke use of nuclear weapons was extensively delegated, to the key plans for normal nuclear conflict beneath Eisenhower, which, if executed, would trigger the near-extinction of humanity, Ellsberg exhibits that the legacy of this most harmful arms buildup within the historical past of civilization–and its proposed renewal beneath the Trump administration–threatens our very survival. No different insider with high-level entry has written so candidly of the nuclear technique of the late Eisenhower and early Kennedy years, and nothing has basically modified since that period. Framed as a memoir–a chronicle of insanity during which Ellsberg acknowledges participating–this gripping exposé reads like a thriller and presents possible steps we are able to take to dismantle the prevailing “doomsday machine” and keep away from nuclear disaster, returning Ellsberg to his position as whistle-blower. The Doomsday Machine is thus a real-life Dr. Strangelove story and an finally hopeful–and powerfully important–book about not simply our nation, however the way forward for the world. present more
