From the cover: “Western society, deeply disturbed about the threat of radiation from damaged nuclear reactors or inadequately isolated nuclear waste, faces a new fear, that of nuclear terrorism. Avoidance of the hi-jacking ofa major city with an atomic bomb has been due, not to effective security either of weapons-grade fuel or technology but the rarity of persons combining all the requisite qualifications: knowledge and imagination to steal the fuel and make the bomb; money to do the job properly; freedom from conscience sufficient to explode the bomb if necessary — and kill a million people; ability to convince the authorities that this will happen it they do not yield; yet seemingly normal enough in personality to remain undetected as they proceed with their business.”

Jacket designed by Rober Marriot Dawson. Size: 8¾" x 5¾". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 265 pages.
