Former New York Times reporter Philip Taubman talks about the current state of nuclear threats, including Pakistan, North Korea, Iran, and the possibility of a nuclear 9-11 at a presentation beginning at 6 p.m. March 15 at Los National Laboratory’s Bradbury Science Museum.
Taubman also will talk about his newly published book, “The Partnership: Five Cold Warriors and Their Quest to Ban the Bomb.”
The talk is open to the public; seating is limited to 100.
Taubman is a former Moscow and Washington, D.C., bureau chief for the New York Times.
He worked at the Times for more than 30 years and also worked at Esquire and Time.
He was twice awarded the George Polk Award for National Reporting and for Foreign Affairs Reporting.
Now a consulting professor at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, Taubman in his book explores in-depth the bipartisan efforts of George Shultz, Henry Kissinger, William Perry, Sam Nunn, and Sid Drell to reduce nuclear threats and ultimately abolish nuclear weapons.
A book signing at the Otowi Station Bookstore next door to the museum follows Taubman’s talk.
