Course Description:

The advent of the nuclear age saw the creation of a powerful energy source. However, it also gave rise to a new world, fraught with incalculable risk and extreme danger. In this four-part offering, Professor Avner Cohen will examine the ongoing history of the nuclear age from the discovery of nuclear energy, to the development and use of devastating weaponry, to the critical issues of present day. Along the way, Dr. Cohen will illuminate how politics, military strategy and morality have impacted each decision within the nuclear arena.
