A terrorist attack with nuclear weapons is the most dangerous security issue America faces today - and we are far more vulnerable than we realize. Driven by this knowledge, five men - all members of the Cold War brain trust behind the U.S. nuclear arsenal - have come together to combat this threat, leading a movement that is shaking the nuclear establishment and challenging the United States and other nations to reconsider their strategic policies.

Illuminating and thought-provoking, The Partnership tells the little-known story of their campaign to reduce the threat of a nuclear attack and, ultimately, eliminate nuclear weapons altogether. It is an intimate look at these men - Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Sam Nunn, William Perry, and the renowned Stanford physicist Sidney Drell - the origins of their unlikely joint effort, and their dealings with President Obama and other world leaders. Award-winning journalist Philip Taubman has provided an important and timely story of science, history, and friendship - of five men who have decided the time has come to dismantle the nuclear kingdom they worked to build.
