Provides a startling glimpse into secret U.S. plans to initiate a nuclear war from 1945 to the present. Based on recently declassified Top Secret documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, this book meticulously traces how U.S. policy makers in over a dozen episodes have threatened to initiate a nuclear attack.
Very few books on defense policy these days use official documents from a regular person's point of view or from the perspective of a concerned public. Most extol the national need or the interests of a few ... and of the books that focus on defense policy nowadays from a people's point of view, most just disregard official sources and spout ideology. Kaku, like Chomsky in many of his works, draws on original official documents for almost all of his research, and consequently it is impossible to argue with him unless you lie.

Unfortunately, most of current doctrine on US nuclear policy holds that we're based on deterrent theories. Kaku shows that this is patently false, and that actual US policy has been one of belligerence and threat to other countries. We do not use nuclear weapons to deter attacks from a defensive perspective. We use them to bully NNWS (non-nuclear weapon states). We use them to scare other less-developed NWS, too. Always have. Always will. Skip the whole Kahn-Schelling debates ... that's all revisionist. Nixon himself admits this in 1971 on live TV (or radio, I can't remember ... Kaku has the source in this book). Nitze and Kissinger are where the real story is.

Don't believe what you hear on TV, read in history books, etc. Look for sources, and official sources from relevant people. Associated Press is not the same as insiders.
A dated, but good look, at the rationale, both good and bad, of US nuclear strategy and the use of nuclear weapons to influence our friends and enemies.
A must read
I was shocked reading this book. I never imagined the truth would be...........
It is true that there were men who orchestrated the gigantic nuclear stockpile the United States during the Cold War. Under their control were fusion-powered Weapons-of-Mass-Destruction capable of destroying all of modern civilization. This book is a bone-chilling insider's account of the minds of these men.

This is an essential text for anyone interested in the philosophy and politics of non-proliferation.
Michio goes through the jaded history of nuclear weapons. The grim mistakes covered up by the worlds political leaders, especialy the US (Truman). His facts are well cited and many freedom of information act disclosures make clear the cold war was clearly the result of Truman's overuse of the bomb as a threat. No wonder the USSR didn't trust us. They were constantly threatened by our adminiustration with annihilation. I am a patriot but the truth is the truth. The USSR did more grave injustice by magnitudes then the US, however global annihilation would have trumped all that had we pushed them even further with paranoia.
In a world where information was freely exchanged where the media existed to inform the public on the most important things, this book would be promoted as an essential for any person who claims to be informed. Instead, it is a secret, passed around by the knowledgeable, those not going along with the program, fighters for humanity.

From World War Two until the days of the Reagan Star Wars project when this book was written, THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT'S CENTRAL PLAN WAS TO BE ABLE TO LAUNCH A NUCLEAR WAR AGAINST THE SOVIET UNION AND PERHAPS CHINA.

This is proved in this book by documentation from United States government documents released through the Freedom of Information Act. In 1947, when the Berlin Crisis broke out, Truman sent the atomic bombers to England to launch war with the Soviet Union, but could not wage war because their were not enough atomic bombs (a chronic problem because until the early 1950s, atomic bombs made by the US only lasted a month). In the 1950s, when Truman recalled McArthur to Wake Island, it was to tell him that there were not enough atomic bombs for wars with both China and the USSR. McArthur could not launch war with China, because the USSR was the priority.

It is more widely known that the US offered to rescue the French colonialists from their defeat at Dien Bien Phu with a nuclear attack, but less known that in both the 1967 and 1973 wars, it was Washington's nuclear threats that guaranteed Israeli victories.

Those who claim the antiwar movement had no effect will be corrected by this book's coverage of Vietnam. Those of us who heard Nixon claim he had a secret plan to end the war, poh poh it at the time. But he did. He was planning to launch a nuclear attack on the borders of North Vietnam and China and North Vietnam at the end of 1969. He threatened this to the Vietnamese who refused to retreat in their continued struggle for national liberation. In the fall of 1969, Nixon met with his generals and J Edgar Hoover. They told him that the antiwar activity was so strong that his nuclear campaign could not be launched. If it was done, they told him, they would need to bring troops home from Vietnam to fight the opponents of the war here.

With the United States bruiting about the world challenging countries it has savaged like Korea and Iran for daring to defend themselves with nuclear weapons, it can never be forgotten that Washington has tried to hold the world through nuclear blackmail since World War II, and that only mechanical failures and political pressures against the advice of Washington has prevented nuclear war. It can never be forgotten that Washington still has enough nuclear weapons to incinerate the planet.

One of the most despicable persons on the planet, David Greenglass who aided the government frameup of his own sister and beloved brother-in-law Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, as atomic bomb spies, who claimed he aided Soviet espionage was once asked what he was most ashamed of. Despite his cold war credentials, Greenglass answered, "working on the Manhattan project (the US-British wartime effort to build the first a-bomb.)" Asked why, Greenglass replied, "the Russians didnt drop a bomb on anyone. Only the USA dropped an atomic bomb on people."

Even Greenglass knows
I remember living through the cold war when it was hot. I had for many years, deep subconscious fears of an imminent attack. Trained as a physicist I knew the horrible consequences. On the one hand, Herman Kahn's arguments gave us reassurance, provided the adversary reasoned likewise. On the other hand, I was afraid of accidental triggers to conflict. This book goes further in exposing serious occasions where use of such weapons was considered. Some governmental institutions must and do continually assess the actual situations and the consequences of actions undertaken to deal with them. Provides some degree of comfort. It unfortunately is unrealistic to wish these weapons away. We may have learned how to not let such devices ever be used.
