For informed, reasoned discussion regarding nuclear threats facing the world and opportunities to address these threats, the Hoover Institution has compiled the work of its scholars on the subject into one comprehensive, easy-to-access section.

Read “A World Free of Nuclear Weapons,” the Wall Street Journal op-ed from 2007 authored by George Shultz, the Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow at the Hoover Institution; former secretary of state Henry Kissinger; William Perry, a senior fellow both at the Hoover Institution and the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies; and former senator Sam Nunn on the site. You can also find “Toward a Nuclear-Free World,” the Wall Street Journal op-ed they coauthored the following year and their Wall Street Journal op-ed “How to Protect Our Nuclear Deterrent,” published in 2010.

Op-eds by Sidney Drell, a senior fellow at Hoover and a professor of theoretical physics emeritus at Stanford’s SLAC National Accelerator Center; Michael McFaul, the senior White House adviser on Russia and a Hoover fellow on leave; and Kori Schake, an associate professor of international security studies at the United States Military Academy, among others, are included.

You can also find out more about Hoover Press books that discuss the far-reaching issues of nuclear nonproliferation. In A World without Nuclear Weapons: End-State Issues the authors Drell and former ambassador James Goodby, a Hoover research fellow, examine the key security challenges that the United States and other nations will face as a program of nuclear warhead reduction unfolds at the extreme end of a long process. A report drawn from presentations at the Hoover Institution’s conference in 2006, Implications of the Reykjavik Summit on Its Twentieth Anniversary, can be read in its entirety. The report from the following year, Reykjavik Revisited: Steps toward a World Free of Nuclear Weapons is also available.

Articles featuring interviews with noted Iranian expert Abbas Milani, a research fellow and codirector of the Iran Democracy Project at the Hoover Institution, and others are included. In addition, you can listen to Victor Davis Hanson, the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, discuss Iran’s nuclear capabilities on Uncommon Knowledge.
