Despite the end of the Cold War, nuclear disarmament remains one of the most contentious issues in international relations. Potential instability in Russia and the former Soviet republics has heightened concerns about the control of nuclear stockpiles, and in the wake of September 11, the possibility that terrorists might obtain and use nuclear weapons has become frighteningly real. In this book, photographer Paul Shambroom documents the nuclear reality we have created in a series of images that offer an inside look at America's nuclear arsenal.
