Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


To introduce the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists' special issue marking the start of its 70th year of publication, Bulletin executive director Kennette Benedict interviewed Frank von Hippel, one of the United States' most prominent scientists in the nuclear policy arena, about his career as it evolved over decades of commitment to nuclear arms control and nonproliferation efforts. The interview includes discussion of a vast range of arms control and nonproliferation efforts that Hippel and allied scientists have been able to move toward success, including a US-Soviet agreement not to conduct nuclear tests that continues today.
