Most of the writings deal with national security, nuclear weapons, and arms control and reflect the author?s personal involvement in such issues dating back to 1960. Fifteen years after the demise of the Soviet Union, the gravest danger presented by nuclear weapons is the spread of advanced technology that may result in the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Of most concern would be their acquisition by hostile+-+282152763432480423ocn000534560book19640.63Bjorken, James DRelativistic quantum mechanics+-+775578725532467918ocn000939866book19650.63Bjorken, James DRelativistic quantum fields5086ocn009555807book19830.66Drell, Sidney DFacing the threat of nuclear weapons5044ocn867050614file20120.37Nuclear Enterprise ConferenceThe nuclear enterprise : high-consequence accidents : how to enhance safety and minimize risks in nuclear weapons and reactorsConference proceedingsNuclear energy can provide great benefits to society; in the form of nuclear weapons, however, it can cause death and destruction on an unparalleled scale. The challenge is how to deal with the catastrophic risk of the nuclear enterprise so as to preserve its positive elements and make economic sense. In this book, an expert group of contributors attempts to answer two key questions facing the nuclear enterprise: (1) What can and should be done to improve operations and public understanding of the risks and consequences of major incidents? (2) How can informed scientists, economists, and journalists interact more effectively in understanding and reporting to the public on the most important issues affecting risks, consequences, and costs? Drawn from a conference held at Stanford University's Hoover Institution on October 3-4, 2011, the papers presented in The Nuclear Enterprise were prepared by specialists on various aspects of this challenging topic, including technical safety, management operations, regulatory measures, and the importance of accurate communication by the media. It is their hope that the findings of the conference will contribute to discussion and then actions to better contain and eliminate growing global dangers4914ocn029185183book19930.56Bundy, McGeorgeReducing nuclear danger : the road away from the brinkThe end of the U.S.-Soviet standoff and the increasing risk of political adventurers such as Saddam Hussein developing nuclear capability have profoundly altered the shape of global nuclear danger. In Reducing Nuclear Danger, three of America's top experts on nuclear affairs offer a thoughtful prescription for effective international action to cut existing nuclear arsenals and to prevent further proliferation. They argue that the United States must take a cooperative leadership role to achieve worldwide control of nuclear weapons. The immediate tasks to this end are to execute the already agreed-upon reductions in U.S. and Russian forces, ensure that Russia remains the only nuclear state of the former Soviet Union, and substantially strengthen the international efforts against the spread of nuclear weapons. The authors favor adopting a strict doctrine of using nuclear weapons only as a "defensive last resort," along with other specific changes in current policy. Prominent in their prescriptions is an eventual drastic reduction of the current Russian-American warhead ceilings. They also advocate a new policy for American leaders - toward other nations as well as the American people - of open public explanation of nuclear danger. This important and insightful book on the current nuclear danger should be read by all citizens with an interest in resolving what remains our greatest global risk, at a time of unprecedented opportunity+-+949645123532444112ocn011786189book19840.70Drell, Sidney DThe Reagan Strategic Defense Initiative : a technical, political, and arms control assessmentStjernekrig41622ocn002548904book19610.77Drell, Sidney DElectromagnetic structure of nucleons4105ocn608586116file20070.53Implications of the Reykjavik summit on its twentieth anniversary conference reportConference proceedingsDrawn from presentations at the Hoover Institution's conference on the twentieth anniversary of the Reykjavik summit, this collection of essays examines the legacy of that historic meeting between President Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.

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 challenging the United States and other nations to reconsider their strategic policies. This book 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. Journalist Philip Taubman explores the motivations, past conflicts, and current debates that drive, and sometimes strain, their bipartisan partnership. --From publisher description11ocn122446319mix19870.47Wagner, JaneHEARTS & QUARKS :Collection consists of original 16mm film negatives (with 3/4 inch video copies), audio tapes, and transcripts of interviews with Dr. Norman Shumway and Prof. Sidney Drell and of a conversation between Shumway and Drell11ocn881396182file1987Schwartz, Charles LeonOral history interview with Charles Leon SchwartzFamily background, education, and development of interest in physics; experience at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, absorbs prevailing political views.
