Reading List: The Nuclear Threat in an Age of Terrorism

Reading List: The Nuclear Threat in an Age of Terrorism

Graham Allison will speak at the 9/11 Memorial Museum on March 8, 2018, at 7 p.m.

North Korea’s continued development of its nuclear capabilities and long-range missile testing has heightened tensions around the world. As a result, the threat of nuclear terrorism is an increasing global security concern.

Graham Allison, a leading analyst of U.S. national security and defense policy, will reflect on this evolving threat tonight beginning at 7 p.m. at the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

Due to the complexity of this topic, the 9/11 Memorial Museum asked Allison to recommend a reading list for those attending the talk or for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of this issue.
