On July 16, 1945, the U.S. government let the nuclear genie out of the bottle with the first test of a nuclear bomb. Ever since, the world has had to cope with the frightening reality of nuclear weapons and the many risks they pose to humanity. For more than two decades, NTI has been on the frontlines of the effort to reduce those risks and, ultimately, rid the world of nuclear weapons. Our leaders, experts, and co-authors have produced a broad array of analysis and information about nuclear weapons and their risks that is trusted by decision-makers and available to all.
If you want to learn more about Oppenheimer’s bomb and what we must do to protect the world today and for future generations, NTI’s online library is the perfect place to go. We’ll get you started with this list of 10 essential NTI reads—well, nine reads and a video—curated by NTI National Security Consultant Steve Andreasen.
