Thompson._x005F_x005F_x005F_x005F_x005F_x005F_x005F_x000D_ Originally published in 1981, Protest and Survive presents a broad spectrum of opinion and information on the dangers inherent in U.S. military and foreign policy, and the nuclear confrontation between Washington and Moscow that threatened the entire globe. Decades later, its words are just as relevant. The United States continues to wield a massive nuclear arsenal and use it to advance a strategy of global imperialism. Firststrike policies, tactical nuclear weapons, and preemptive war are becoming increasingly central to the expansion of U.S. empire, thus putting the security of all humanity at risk. More than a historical document, Protest and Survive helps us better understand the dangers of longterm U.S. nuclear strategy, and reminds us that it is a strategy we can resist.
