One topic that has always interested me is the possibility of a war to end all wars. From the years of 1945 to 1991, such a fate loomed over the heads of every man, women, and child on Earth as the United States and The Soviet Union played an endless game of chicken with the nuclear arsenals. Expounding on this subject is a book written by arguably one of the greatest science fiction authors of our time, Ben Bova. Star Peace: Assured Survival looks at how we got to where we are in a world that almost saw complete and total destruction, and how we can survive.

Reading several section of the book tells me that Bova’s thoughts and arguments are well thought out as he provides not only a history, but a way to achieve something truly special – world peace.
