Great Decisions - Nuclear Proliferation: Who Has Power?
Guest Speaker: Mary Curtin
In this Great Decisions, Mary Curtin will speak about nuclear proliferation. This topic continues to be an important one, as the unsteady heartbeat of world leadership spreads uncertainty of our future. Mary's insightful viewpoint will focus on the current state of the World, who has power, who doesn't, and what that means for US defense.
