The Realist Case for Eliminating Nuclear Weapons

Ward Hayes Wilson/Senior Fellow, Federation of American Scientists

Ward Wilson is a senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists. He is widely acknowledged as the leading source of pragmatic arguments against nuclear weapons in the world today.

His book, Five Myths About Nuclear Weapons, was endorsed by two Pulitzer-Prize-winning historians of nuclear weapons, recommended by four star generals, praised by a former head of state and Nobel Peace Prize winner, and described as “brilliant, original, and important.” He is an award-winning writer, who has been published in anti-nuclear journals like The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and Nonproliferation Review, military journals like Joint Force Quarterly and Revue de Défense Nationale, foreign policy journals like Survival, Foreign Policy, and Harvard’s International Security, as well as in The Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and others.

He has spoken in 23 countries on six continents, at the Pentagon, the French National Assembly, the United Nations, the Scottish National Parliament, the U.S. State Department, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Georgetown, the Sorbonne, the U.S. Naval War College, King’s College London, Hamburg University, Nagasaki University, University of Pretoria, and others. He is currently working on a new book, titled The Realist Case for Eliminating Nuclear Weapons.
