Minutes to Midnight explores the dynamics of the antinuclear protest movement, particularly the freeze and its origins, growth, decline, and enduring problems. Beginning with a historical analysis of early attempts to control nuclear weapons, the authors then use a unique sociohistorical case study to give new insight into how social change occurs in postindustrial society. The seven chapters examine the problems created by the development of technology, nuclear weapons, and the creation of new social classes and new social movements as vehicles to accumulate power.
