What sort of narrative defines the American experience with nuclear weapons? National security expert Joe Cirincione argues that it is not a triumph, but a tragedy — one ripe with themes the ancient Greeks would have recognized. He will guide us through the paradoxes and pitfalls of US nuclear policy and expose the costs - political, financial, and moral - of our search for an all-too illusory security in the atomic age.
