FREE DOWNLOAD ê Five Myths About Nuclear Weapons “ Five Myths About Nuclear Weapons is accessible short and breathless It has the tone of a TED talk an avid speaker bursting with one big idea and eighteen minutes to hold your attention” New York TimesNuclear war would be an apocalypse Nuclear deterrence is effective in a crisis Nuclear weapons shock and awe opponent. This is a very interesting and succinct essay and very clearly written However I don t think the author uite makes his case At the end he claims that the nuclear weapons do not have a special power to overawe their opponents example Japan 1945 and that they might not be decisive in warWilson argues that Japan surrendered because the USSR entered the war against them not because of Hiroshima and Nagasaki I think his arguments are very convincing though the documentary evidence he presents seems uite circumstantial I am sure he has done his homework but I would have been convinced had he systematically gone through all the surviving evidence about why the Japanese made the decision to surrender However I am not sure Wilson s conclusion is entirely correct Firstly he discusses the specific circumstances surrounding HiroshimaNagasaki but doesn t entertain the possibility that a different set of circumstances could overawe another Government Although I think Wilson is correct to say that anyone drawing the conclusion that nuclear weapons can be a game changer from the specific instance of Japan 1945 is mistaken I am not so sure he is right to suggest that this one example proves his general point After all it may be that in 90% of cases using nuclear weapons might overawe an opponentAs for the decisive in war argument I am not convinced His views rather rest on the idea of nuclear weapons being used against cities but he does not really discuss the obvious point that they could of course be used against military formationsinstallations etc Until the relatively recent advent of precision guided munitions nuclear weapons clearly did give holders a military advantage as they guarantee destruction of the military target without any need for precision In that sense they clearly do have some potential to be decisive in war particularly for a state without precision guided weapons and assuming they have sufficient numbersI agree very much with his historical examples that nuclear weapons don t deter risky behaviour and his argument about Kennedy I think is correct Eually I agree with his view that one shouldn t conclude nuclear weapons kept the peace in the Cold War just because there was no nuclear warOccasionally the book discusses historical events without using archival evidence which I think weakens the case Eg he discussed the move of B 29s to the Pacific during Korea and says we can t know Truman s motive But surely documents must exist that would allow us to make an informed judgement Lastly one annoying error the Soviet Union was not dissolved in 1989 page 92 it was 1991 Windburn from the specific instance of Japan 1945 is mistaken I am not so sure he is right to suggest that this one example proves his general point After all it may be that in 90% of cases using nuclear weapons might overawe an opponentAs Light Traveling for the decisive in war argument I am not convinced His views rather rest on the idea of nuclear weapons being used against cities but he does not really discuss the obvious point that they could of course be used against military Knights vs Dinosaurs formationsinstallations etc Until the relatively recent advent of precision guided munitions nuclear weapons clearly did give holders a military advantage as they guarantee destruction of the military target without any need Knights vs Dinosaurs for precision In that sense they clearly do have some potential to be decisive in war particularly Goodnight Moon for a state without precision guided weapons and assuming they have sufficient numbersI agree very much with his historical examples that nuclear weapons don t deter risky behaviour and his argument about Kennedy I think is correct Eually I agree with his view that one shouldn t conclude nuclear weapons kept the peace in the Cold War just because there was no nuclear warOccasionally the book discusses historical events without using archival evidence which I think weakens the case Eg he discussed the move of B 29s to the Pacific during Korea and says we can t know Truman s motive But surely documents must exist that would allow us to make an informed judgement Lastly one annoying error the Soviet Union was not dissolved in 1989 page 92 it was 1991
