Overview


My Journey at the Nuclear Brink is a continuation of William J. Perry's efforts to keep the world safe from a nuclear catastrophe. It tells the story of his coming of age in the nuclear era, his role in trying to shape and contain it, and how his thinking has changed about the threat these weapons pose.

In a remarkable career, Perry has dealt firsthand with the changing nuclear threat. Decades of experience and special access to top-secret knowledge of strategic nuclear options have given Perry a unique, and chilling, vantage point from which to conclude that nuclear weapons endanger our security rather than securing it.

This book traces his thought process as he journeys from the Cuban Missile Crisis, to crafting a defense strategy in the Carter Administration to offset the Soviets' numeric superiority in conventional forces, to presiding over the dismantling of more than 8,000 nuclear weapons in the Clinton Administration, and to his creation in 2007, with George Shultz, Sam Nunn, and Henry Kissinger, of the Nuclear Security Project to articulate their vision of a world free from nuclear weapons and to lay out the urgent steps needed to reduce nuclear dangers.

 

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
10/05/2015
Perry, more technocrat than politician, emphasizes his efforts to prevent nuclear war in this sincere and nontriumphalist memoir. Perry, an early Silicon Valley CEO, served as the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering in the Carter administration, before returning to the private sector during the 1980s. Perry was recalled to government service during the Clinton Administration, briefly as Undersecretary of Defense (1993–1994) and then Secretary of Defense (1994–1997); he carried out the Nunn-Lugar program, which dismantled thousands of nuclear weapons in Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. In 1996, Russian troops served under an American commander as peacekeepers in Bosnia, marking (in Perry’s blunt assessment) the high point in the possibility of a nuclear-free world. Then, despite his protests, NATO admitted the three Baltic states and began “the early processing of Georgia and Ukraine” for membership, enraging Russia. Since that time, Russia, under the pugnacious Vladimir Putin, has expanded its nuclear arsenal just as the alarmingly unpredictable nations of North Korea and Pakistan have further developed their nuclear capabilities. The obligatory how-to-fix-it conclusion is not encouraging, failing to go beyond vague tactics such as “education of the public.” Perry’s admirable memoir is a disturbing reminder that the danger of nuclear war did not disappear with the collapse of the Soviet Union. (Dec.)
