'As Americans, we need to face up to our own reliance on nuclear intimidation. This is an important book for Americans of all political stripes to read.' --Cynthia Enloe, author of The Curious Feminist: Searching for Women in a New Age of Empire  "At a time when nuclear weapons are increasingly in the political spotlight, this book is essential reading ... Joseph Gerson has provided a work of the utmost importance: a key to understanding - and challenging - US global domination and its nuclear core." --Kate Hudson, Chair, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament  "Brilliant. I have not read a more important book in many years. Gerson has uncovered the radioactive vein in our secret foreign policy. ... Gerson's work helps us understand why the likelihood of nuclear war is greater now than before the fall of the Berlin Wall. A terrific book." --Daniel Ellsberg, former senior Pentagon official and co-author of The Pentagon Papers
