A substantial number of people have shown an interest in this subject. Our purpose in focusing on this area is that we’ve had a sense, since the Cold War, that the risks of nuclear weapons, the threats presented, and the ways of controlling nuclear weapons, have largely fallen out of the public consciousness.”
