Nuclear Nonfiction

The whistleblower behind the Pentagon Papers and Noam Chomsky cover nuclear war in their new nonfiction books:

THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner by Daniel Ellsberg
A finalist for the 2018 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction with three starred reviews! From the legendary whistle-blower who revealed the Pentagon Papers, an eyewitness exposé of the awful dangers of America’s hidden, fifty-year-long nuclear policy that continues to this day.

“Ellsberg’s brilliant and unnerving account makes a convincing case for disarmament and shows that the mere existence of nuclear weapons is a serious threat to humanity.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Ellsberg’s book is essential for facilitating a national discussion about a vital topic.” — Library Journal, starred review

“A must-read of the highest order, Ellsberg’s profoundly awakening chronicle is essential to our future.” — Booklist, starred review

GLOBAL DISCONTENTS: Conversations on the Rising Threats to Democracy by Noam Chomsky
Also available in audio
In a compelling new set of interviews conducted from 2013 to 2016, Chomsky identifies the “dry kindling” of discontent around the world (the escalation of climate change and the growing potential for nuclear war) that could soon catch fire. “Every page of this lively, probing, and sharp collection delivers a searing observation from linguist and political-thinker Chomsky.” — Publishers Weekly
