From Publishers Weekly:

These essays, written by more than 125 people, including William F. Buckley Jr., Phyllis Diller, Andrey Sakharov and Pravda editor Viktor Afarasyev, make compelling reading. Sagan's introduction outlines the importance of avoiding nuclear war, and each succeeding essay reveals why and how the writer believes the nuclear problem can be solved. Physicist John W. Gofman asserts that good people can be misguided and that Americans and Western Europeans have natural survival instincts. Sakharov and Afarasyev both maintain that the human race must pull together as a team and overcome the nuclear threat. Education in modern technology is essential, says New York Times columnist Flora Lewis, so that we don't have to rely too heavily on the "experts." New York Governor Mario Cuomo adds another voice of optimism in what is perhaps the most succinctand most powerfulessay. This collection should be read and reread. Photos.

From Library Journal:

A unified worldwide plea for the future. Paulson has selected the contributions of 120 individuals representing all walks of life. The essays vary from four sentences by actor Richard Pryor to numerous thoughtful essays by individuals such as physicist Herbert York, Soviet philosopher Viktor Afanasyev, and psychologist Hans Furth. The result is an accumulation of broad views on the nuclear crisis. The pieces are loosely divided into four sectionsthe problem, responses, the prognosis, and solutionsbut the threat of nuclear war is common to them all. Though not all contributions favor total nuclear dismantling, most of the writers feel that our future depends on disarmament. This is the first of a planned series: a people's Voices and a children's one are planned. The initial effort is innovative and generally successful. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
