    Finally he contends that the revolution in military affairs can promote less reliance on deterrence by retaliatory threats, support better collective management of peace and security and permit us to outgrow nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction. This new major work builds upon Patrick Morgan's landmark book, Deterrence ().   Pope Francis on Thursday marked the 75th anniversary of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima by calling for peace and repeating that not only the use of atomic weapons but their mere possession is immoral.

      The Atomic Bomb Dome is seen at dusk in Hiroshima, western Japan, Sunday, Aug. 2, The city of Hiroshima on Thursday, Aug. 6 marks . Hiroshima is a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author John tells the stories of six survivors of the atomic bomb dropped on is regarded as one of the earliest examples of the New Journalism, in which the story-telling techniques of fiction are adapted to non-fiction reporting.. The work was originally published in The New Yorker, which had planned to run it over four.

    This book recommends a renewed intellectual effort on nuclear deterrence. The rea-sons, spelled out in Chapter Two, are many, but the core principle is straightforward: As long as nuclear weapons are around, even in small numbers, deterrence is the safest doctrine to deal with them.3 This principle is easier to embrace in theory than it is to.   Standing before survivors of the U.S. atomic bombings, Francis denounced the steady erosion of arms control agreements and rejected the Cold War-era doctrine of deterrence .
