Out of the Nuclear Shadow

by Smitu Kothari and Zia Mian (Editors)
£21.95   paperback  Zed Books (2001)

Out of the Nuclear Shadow by Smitu Kothari and Zia Mian (Editors) Outraged conscience, careful arguement, poetry, political analysis - gathered here is the diversity of voices, traditions, approaches, that are weaving themselves into an anti-nuclear and peace movement in India and Pakistan.
 
In these essays, written before, during and after the May 1998 nuclear explosions, scholars and activists from the two countries attempt to understand and challenge the nuclearisation of South Asia. The essays are an act of resistance against governments that see nuclear weapons as a currency of power, as symbols of prestige, sources of security, moments of glory, in an otherwise dismal contemporary history.
 
The collection includes Mahatma Gandhi's response to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and recent writings by Eqbal Ahmad, Rajni Kothari, Ashis Nandy, Arundhati Roy, Amartya Sen, and veteran anti-nuclear activists, academics and journalists. This volume also contains the texts of many of the historic public statements protesting the May 1998 nuclear tests that helped mobilise public opposition to the bomb in South Asia. There is a resource guide to books, films and websites on nuclear weapons, as well as information on many organisations now working on this issue.
