Abstract: The first half of Our Future at Stake discusses the problem itself: the arms race, how it started, how much it costs, why some believe the weapons are necessary, and how arms control works. The second half of the book discusses possible action, including education, non-violent protest, voting, lobbying, and methods of influencing the media. Our Future is attractively laid out like a magazine, the format aggressive and entertaining: statistics, cartoons, and graphics frame well-documented information; quotes from students line the margin of each page: "I think any action is worth doing. Demonstrations make me feel happy and exhilarated. People focus on love of life rather than death or fear. It's great."
