"Five Myths about Nuclear Weapons" by Ward Wilson

    Ward Wilson is a senior fellow at the Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the Monterey Institute of International Studies. He has spoken before governments and at think tanks and universities on the issue of Nuclear Weapons.

Wilson’s new book, Five Myths about Nuclear Weapons, shows how Nuclear weapons have always been a serious but seemingly insoluble problem: while they’re obviously dangerous, they are also, apparently, necessary. But, Wilson’s study shows why the five central arguments promoting nuclear weapons are, in essence, myths.
