Titel:Over our dead bodies 
Auteur: Dorothy Thompson 
Samenvatting: We are beginning to think the unthinkable; that there could be a nuclear war in our lifetime. Yet politicians and the media tell us that we lack the expertise to argue against nuclear weapons. This book has an abundance of facts - on nuclear weapons, deterrence theory, civil defence, the nuclear arms race, alternative defence strategy. But it insists too that questions of peace and war are questions of morality and politics, that we are all capable of judging the issues and seeing the dangers - the militarisation of our society, the dehumanising of the 'enemy', the paralysis of the imagination induced by contemplating a nuclear future. These are the voices of deeply concerned women: historians, novelists, politicians, philosophers, woman in the peace movement and the peace camps, women working in arms factories. They don't claim to be the only ones who passionately want peace; they agree there is no simple formula for avoiding nuclear war. But they argue that the question is too important to be left to the 'experts'. Nationalist leaders hava not prevented wars in the past, and we can't trust them to do so now. We must understand, argue end act.
