    • The Dead Hand: The Untold Story of the Cold War Arms Race and Its Dangerous Legacy  by David E. Hoffman. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction.    The first full account of how the Cold War arms race finally came to a close.

Hoffman examines the inner motives and secret decisions of each side and details the deadly stockpiles of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons that remained unsecured as the Soviet Union collapsed. This is the fascinating story of how Reagan, Gorbachev, and a previously unheralded collection of scientists, soldiers, diplomats, and spies changed the course of history.
