But at what price is the balance maintained? The question is all the more important in the face of suggestions to reduce further or eliminate land-based strategic missiles and rely even more on missiles ferried by nuclear-powered submarines.

What is known about these seldom-seen guardians of the nuclear balance? What kind of accidents have they had? What kinds of accidents may yet occur? What happens if they release their troublesome nuclear materials to the worlds oceans? Sunken Nuclear Submarines asks and attempts to answer these and other important questions. Relying on the limited information made available by the superpowers, the author reviews information from some of the 200 known accidents involving nuclear submarines and assesses the environmental consequences.

The author concludes that only increased candor and openness on the part of the superpowers will permit a true understanding of the risks of using nuclear-powered submarines as a part of the strategic balance. This book will be of interest to politicians, political journalists, environmentalists, and general readers.
