Daniel Ellsberg on The Doomsday Machine by Daniel Ellsberg

Daniel Ellsberg on The Doomsday Machine

by Daniel Ellsberg


Title Details

Running Time
1 Hr.


With recent news stories about big red buttons and a blockbuster movie (The Post) about the Pentagon Papers, Daniel Ellsberg's story is very timely. He's the legendary whistle-blower who revealed the Pentagon Papers, and his book is an eyewitness exposé of the dangers of America's Top Secret, seventy-year-long nuclear policy that continues to this day.

Framed as a memoir--a chronicle of madness in which Ellsberg acknowledges participating--this gripping tale reads like a thriller and offers feasible steps we can take to dismantle the existing "doomsday machine" and avoid nuclear catastrophe. The Doomsday Machine is thus a real-life Dr. Strangelove story and an ultimately hopeful--and powerfully important--book about not just our country, but the future of the world.
