BNL Lecture: Nuclear Stability or Instability in the 21st Century?
Start Date: 2/20/2013Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 2/20/2013

Event Description:
Will US-Soviet Cold War History Repeat for China, India, and Pakistan?

Covert war plans, hidden weapons stockpiles, top-secret containment strategies: Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War, a cache of declassified documents sheds new light on military and political circumstances that presaged a serious threat of nuclear war between the US and the former Soviet Union.

As technology in the 21st century connects distant points around the globe, and the factors that may lead to conflict become increasingly complex, serious questions arise: What, if any, is the strategic purpose of nuclear weapons and under what circumstances would they be used? And can we learn from the arms race of the past to prevent the deployment of a nuclear bomb in the future?

Speaker: Thomas Graham, Nonproliferation and National Security Department, BNL
