"A fascinating account of a hidden elite and a hidden era in American politics, packed with inside stories that will be new to even the most seasoned specialists. The tale of the strategic 'Whiz Kids' has never been told in such detail or with such flair." —Les AspinChairman, House Armed Services Committee

"Fascinating. . . . It contains much that is not only new but stunning about the nation's official thinking and planning for nuclear war."
The Washington Post Book World

"Like most people, I know that nuclear strategy is a subject of crucial importance—but shy away from it as too forbidding. Reading Fred Kaplan, I understand and want to learn more. He brings the subject to life with human example and an understanding so sure that he can explain the unthinkable."
—Anthony Lewis,The New York Times
