Jonathan Schell's monumental best-seller The Fate of the Earth - published in 1981 - was the definitive warning of nuclear peril during the Cold War. The recent crisis in South Asia has returned the nuclear question to the forefront of global consciousness, and a long overdue discussion of the new contours of nuclear threat in the post-Cold War world is taking shape. In a series of conversations with more than two dozen leading figures of the Cold War, such as Vietnam-era defense secretary Robert McNamara, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, and the last commander of the Strategic Air Command, General George Lee Butler, Jonathan Schell returns to the discussion with new answers, finding support for complete nuclear disarmament within the most unlikely group - the very generals and politicians who devised and executed the nuclear policies of the Cold War. In a spirit of bold optimism, Schell calls upon all Americans - indeed all the world's citizens - to end our forced cohabitation with horror, to take the step that alone can free us from nuclear peril: the abolition of nuclear weapons.
