Come and hear a stimulating talk on a life-and-death issue. Dr. Elaine Scarry will present a basic review of the current US policy on nuclear issues, explore the
budgetary aspects, including reference to the People’s Budget, and present her approach to scaling back. Your views on this subject, whatever your perspective, are welcome in the discussion which follows the talk.

Elaine Scarry is an American essayist and professor of English and American Literature and Language. She is the Walter M. Cabot Professor of Aesthetics and
the General Theory of Value at Harvard University.

She is the author of Thermonuclear Monarchy, which invites the reader to think through the question
of how to eliminate these terrible and useless weapons, efforts that go back all the way to the 1946 Acheson-Lilienthal Report, prepared by a group of experts led by Oppenheimer himself for submission to the newly formed United Nations
