"Ambassador Alexander Kmentt’s invaluable book offers a first-hand account of the courageous work of governments and civil society that resulted in the 2017 Treaty Prohibiting Nuclear Weapons.

The world has lived under the threat of nuclear oblivion for too long, but now the Treaty offers us a way forward. Kmentt’s book offers insight and analysis of how change is possible. Based on his years working on humanitarian disarmament, he provides a convincing rationale for the transformative potential of the Treaty and the human security arguments on which it is based."
