American Lake: Nuclear Peril in the Pacific
American Lake: Nuclear Peril in the Pacific
By Peter Hayes and Lyuba Zarski
Penguin, 1987, 529 pp.

Although alarmist and somewhat sensational in tone, this well-researched volume does offer a good deal of information on the increase of American and Soviet nuclear forces in the Pacific and the dangers inherent therein. Unfortunately it comes to some rather simplistic solutions in the form of so-called nuclear-free zones.
