What About the Children? The Threat of Nuclear War and Our Responsibility to Preserve this Planet for Future Generations.
Hawkes, Glenn W.
Part of a global effort, this brochure was written to increase understanding of the threat nuclear war poses to children. Several issues are raised and briefly discussed, including (1) the present capacity for annihilating the next generation or ending human life on this planet, (2) the inadequacy of deterrence, (3) the suffering of children after the use of nuclear weapons on the populations of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, (4) the consequences of the use of present-day nuclear weapons, (5) the "arms race," (5) the use of words to make the production of nuclear weapons acceptable, (6) overcoming feelings of helplessness, and (7) actions that can be taken to prevent nuclear war.
