Now, Then, and the Future: The Bulletin Turns 75

JOHN MECKLIN, editor  | With a foreword by NOAM CHOMSKY


"[T]he Bulletin has been in the forefront of our effort to break the silence, to lift the veil that conceals the dread fate to which the human species is hurtling..."

—Noam Chomsky

The history of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is a remarkable one, full of some of the greatest thinkers of modern times trying to grapple with a truly existential dilemma: the first invention of humankind that could exterminate humanity.

This 365-page 75th anniversary book gathers some of the best writing published by the Bulletin so far. It includes never-before-seen bonus material, with a foreword from noted theoretical linguist and author Noam Chomsky.
