'In Fatal Choice, Richard Butler, a well-known and respected voice on the subject of nuclear weapons argues that we continue to face a choice with respect to nuclear weapons - either to move safely towards their elimination or to remain their victim. A 40-year effort to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons is breaking down, and the likelihood that terrorists will acquire these weapons is growing.
The revival by the Bush administration of missile defense, and the build-up of nuclear weapons by India, Pakistan, Iraq, and North Korea will not deal with the problem but worsen it. Richard Butler's timely and important book outlines the steps that need to be taken to give effect to the right choice on nuclear weapons.'
