"Right of Boom: The Aftermath of Nuclear Terrorism"

What would happen if a nuclear bomb detonated in downtown Washington, D.C.?

This is the question national security expert Benjamin E. Schwartz explores in his new book "Right of Boom: The Aftermath of Nuclear Terrorism." He imagines what could happen after a nuclear explosion takes place in the United States, the event that Presidents Obama and Bush, as well as would-be Presidents Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton, have acknowledged as the greatest single national security threat we face. He maps out the likely ramifications while going deep into history to explore the limited range of options available to a Commander in Chief.

In this discussion, Schwartz will also speak about his extensive experience in a variety of national security positions within the United States government, including in the Department of State, Department of Defense, and Department of Energy. 

 
Note: This event was rescheduled from March 5th due to inclement weather in Washington, DC.
