Award-winning journalist Phillip Taubman’s The Partnership: Five Cold Warriors and Their Quest to Ban the Bomb tells the story of the bipartisan partnership between NSP principals - George Shultz, William Perry, Henry Kissinger, Sam Nunn and Stanford physicist Sidney Drell – and their campaign to reduce the threat posed by nuclear materials and, ultimately, eliminate nuclear weapons altogether.

The New York Times: “Haunting and fascinating … an important public service.”

Author and Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward: “Brilliant, penetrating study… Readers will tremble at the dangers the world has faced and still faces today.”

Former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw: “A richly detailed account of one of the most important issues of our time… Taubman brings this compelling subject to life with original reporting and vivid descriptions … should be on the bedside of every presidential candidate, national affairs journalist and engaged citizen."
