"Nuclear Threats, Nuclear Abolition" is the topic of a forum hosted by the Stanford Linear Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) on Monday, April 2.
The forum features author and former New York Times bureau chief Philip Taubman, who will describe the current state of nuclear threats, including Pakistan, North Korea and Iran and the possibility of a nuclear 9/11.
He will also discuss the joint bipartisan effort of Bay Area residents George Shultz, Sid Drell and Bill Perry, who worked with Sam Nunn and Henry Kissinger to reduce nuclear threats and ultimately abolish nuclear weapons. Mr. Taubman recently published "The Partnership: Five Cold Warriors and Their Quest to Ban the Bomb," which examines their careers and how the five men have influenced the national nuclear agenda.
The free event starts at 4:15 p.m. in the Panofsky Auditorium at SLAC, located at 2575 Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park.
