Investigative journalist Eric Schlosser is the author of the New York Times bestselling books Fast Food Nation, which helped launch a revolution in how people think about what they eat; Reefer Madness, which probed the flourishing black market of sex, drugs, and cheap labor; and Chew on This, a children’s book about industrial agriculture and the health effects of fast food. He produced the feature film adaptation of Fast Food Nation and the award-winning films Food, Inc. and There Will Be Blood. Command and Control is a lively account of the management of our country’s nuclear arsenal that grapples with the dilemma faced since the dawn of the atomic era: how to deploy a nuclear arsenal without being destroyed by it.
