Seasons

In the last couple of days, I've been reading Graham Allison's Essence of Decision. It's an analysis of the various factors influencing the outcome of the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962.

Allison has written another book, Nuclear Terrorism: The Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe. It was published two or three years ago, but still serves as a disquieting reminder of the risks existing in our world.

Graham gives a synopsis of the book and answers questions here.
