This volume reprints three articles on the nuclear dilemma from the New Yorker. Their appearance in such a journal helps explain the growing opposition to the nuclear arms race in the United States. While atomic scientists may have first sounded the alarm in 1945, it is now being echoed throughout the scientific, medical and religious worlds. Schell's book helps to carry their message to non-experts whose response will ultimately be decisive.
