He has dealt with important security issues such as nuclear proliferation, arms control, missile defense, and global warming. The filmmakers traveled across the country with Dr. Garwin as he pursued these and other issues. They have produced an eloquent testimony to Dr. Garwin’s contributions to peace and security.
