Discussing the book "Missile Envy: The Arms Race and Nuclear War," (published by Murrow) with the author, humanist and physician Dr. Helen Caldicott. Program also includes the opening of Studs' inaugural address.
The world spends 600 billon dollars on the arms race, which is rather puzzling to Dr. Helen Caldicott when 2/3 of the world's children are starving. Caldicott explained if a bomb went off in Chicago, there'd be a crater a half a mile wide and 300 feet deep. In addition, 90% of the people will be dead, some from being vaporized.
Discussing observations and experiences as a medical practioner in Vietnam and then Central America, principally, El Salvador with Charlie Clements M.D.
