The interview examines Cousins' activities in peace and anti-nuclear movements since the 1940s, his writing, his struggle with ankylosing spondylitis, and his subsequent interest in helping other patients with life-threatening illnesses to help themselves. The interview includes extensive discussion of the United World Federalists, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy, Cousins' diplomatic work, and his friendship with important political leaders of the post-World War II world.
