Looking for Square Two is an insightful, thought-provoking foray into the controversial subject of nuclear disarmament by longtime lecturer and peace activist Douglas Mattern. This intellectual study covers the social, political, and economic ramifications of nuclear warfare and offers some achievable solutions to many frighteningly real conundrums. Mattern offers a point of view that is refreshingly straightforward and human—a realistic answer to today's convoluted political atmosphere.

From the Inside Flap:

"Powerful and shocking...reads like a nightmare scenario from science fiction.Looking for Square Two explains with frightening clarity why nuclear disarmament is so desperately important for the future of our children and our planet. It is something none of us can afford to ignore: read this book, talk about the issues, send copies to friends, neighbors, and politicians." —Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder, The Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace "...to survive this century, we must somehow graduate from a culture of war to a culture of peace...Mr. Mattern's book, Looking for Square Two, is an important contribution to this task. His personal memories of the peace movement in the second half of the 20th century,...his understanding of Hiroshima and the message of the hibakusha,...[and] his vision of a global community points us in the right direction. [Mattern's] straight talk makes [this] easy and enjoyable reading. This book should be required reading for all world leaders. No, that won't do it. We should never elect another leader who has not read this book." —Tadatoshi Akiba, Mayor of Hiroshima and President, Mayors for Peace "...[Mattern] presents ideas for a unified global community characterized by world peace. He is implementing the peace philosophy of Roman philosopher Seneca when, in the year 42 AD, said 'the whole world would be at peace when everyone could say: omnis orbs terrarium patria mea est – the whole world is my country.' The fallacy of war where everyone is a loser and the wisdom of peace where everyone is a winner." —Charles Mercieca, Ph.D ., President, International Association of Educators for World Peace and Professor Emeritus, Alabama A&M University
