I’m reading Nuclear War: What’s In It For You?, which is great, but which was published in 1982. What should I read next to catch me from 1982 to the present?

Richard Rhodes:

(1986). The Making of the Atomic Bomb. New York: Simon & Schuster. ISBN 0-671-44133-7.

(1995). Dark Sun: The Making of the Hydrogen Bomb. New York: Simon & Schuster. ISBN 0-684-80400-X.

(2007). Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race. New York: Alfred A. Knopf. ISBN 0-375-41413-4.

(2010). The Twilight of the Bombs: Recent Challenges, New Dangers, and the Prospects for a World Without Nuclear Weapons. New York: Alfred A. Knopf. ISBN 0-307-26754-7.

I also found Feroz Hassan Khan's Eating Grass: The Making of the Pakistani Bomb. Stanford University Press; Stanford. 2012. worthwhile.
