Abstract:

"A look at the political, economic and psychological levels of the nuclear crisis. There are, says Koval, two kinds of nuclear states. There is the nuclear state apparatus whose ruling principle is domination through science; and there is the nuclear "state of being" which includes the psychology of living under the nuclear gun. The nuclear crisis is not a matter technically adjusting the nature and number of warheads, but the agony and paranoia of an entire civilization"--Back cover.
