Reviews

'A fascinating series of vignettes ... Hodge and Weinberger's chronicle of the trillions of wasted nuclear dollars might stiffen Obama's resolve to take the moral high ground - and put this expenditure to better use' New Statesman 'An engaging, quirkily informative book ... part travelogue, part socio-historical analysis of nuclear weapons and their place in today's world' Big Issue 'A rapid, darkly comic tour of nuclear weapons sites across the world. A rare achievement in a nuclear policy book, their narrative demystifies an intimidating topic for a broad audience without sacrificing substance' Nature 'Entertaining ... revealing ... rich in amusing anecdotes' Guardian
