Nobody loves nuclear weapons--except their powerfully placed defenders in government, their supporters in the military, and terrorists. When President Barack Obama brought his vision of a nuclear weapons-free world to the White House, he re-energized the peace movement. Today the historical momentum to rid the world of nuclear weapons is once again gathering speed.

Former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament and Senator Douglas Roche, a leading authority on nuclear disarmament, writes about the people, the issues, and the ideas behind the new peace movement. Using a UN conference that took place in New York City in 2010 as his jumping off point, Douglas Roche takes us behind-the-scenes to describe the many diplomats, members of NGOs, and individuals who have come together to push for peace.
