This book is the opening volume in the first comprehensive history of the global movement against nuclear weapons. Ranging from the prophetic warning of H. G. Wells in 1913 to the H-Bomb controversy of the 1950s, One World or None tells in a lively fashion the story of the emergence of popular efforts to save humanity from nuclear destruction.
