Many prominent Australians – including H. C. Coombs, Senator Susan Ryan, leading academics and medics – a symposium organised by the American National University to exmine the whole issue of nuclear war and its implication for Australia with distinguished experts from overseas, and mingled and talked with many representatives of Australian peace movements. This book presents the upshot of these deliberations, including unforgettable illustrations of some of the consequences of nuclear war. The book does not pretend to provide the answers, nor does it take any political viewpoint. It does present the authoritative opinions of some of the world’s leading minds on the extent of the threat that faces Australia alongside powerful statements from committed men and women from around the world – opinions that will inform and disturb all thinking Australians.
