TESTIMONIALS FOR "U.S. NUCLEAR WEAPONS" AND CHUCK'S LATER
"I call it the 'Holy S***' book...The information in it is pretty good. In some cases, a little too good." -- Tom Clancy, author of THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER and THE SUM OF ALL FEARS.
"Chuck's research was my single most important source for DARK SUN. No one else has assembled such an outstanding collection of declassified documents. No one else knows how to work the declassification system to update and upgrade such a collection. Chuck is a unique source and resource" -- Richard Rhodes, author of THE MAKING OF THE ATOMIC BOMB and DARK SUN: THE MAKING OF THE HYDROGEN BOMB.
"There's a lot more there than I ever knew"-- Dr. Herbert York, ex-director of the University of California Radiation Laboratory, Livermore, CA.
"He's made an important contribution. In an extremely useful and dramatic way, he's collated an enormous amount of data on U.S. nuclear weapons, and that in itself is very useful for scholarship and for individuals interested in understanding policy." -- Dr. Theodore Postol, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
"There are not too many people who know a lot about this topic. Chuck, through great effort and dedication, has mastered the ins and outs." Dr. Stan Norris, Natural Resources Defense Council, Washington, D.C.
Eleanor, I received the new Swords and have carefully read the first two volumes
and I can hardly believe what a beautiful, comprehensive job they are. I haven't
gone through the earlier version I saw last summer to
check what has been added since the first edition, but what you and the Hatfields and Chuck did is going to be of such value. I don't think even you can imagine. Swords TWO is everything anybody will need to know, and all
they will know, because secrecy on nuclear weapons is not going to get easier. All this is by way of saying that I feel privileged to have anything to do with the project ". Priscilla J. McMillan, author of The Ruin of Robert J. Oppenheimer and the Birth of the Modern Arms Race.
WHAT IS CHUKELEA PUBLICATIONS ?
Chukelea Publications is a corporation wholly owned by Eleanor Hansen. We wanted to make the information in The Swords of Armageddon available to interested researchers and publishing it ourselves is the one way we could do that. We think that the Swords of Armageddon CD-ROM is the most convenient way for many researchers to obtain significant information about the history of the United States development of nuclear weapons.
