QuotationI do think you ought to read something about it. A book put out by the Merlin Press in London, and edited by Walter Stein, a professor at Leeds, is very solid. There is a really good essay by a professor or whatever you call a lady don at Somerville, G. E. M. Anscombe. Do you know her? I think her contribution to this book makes a world of sense. The book is Nuclear Weapons and Christian Conscience. I hope to use all the material in a collection I am editing here. There will be a lot of other things too, by people like Lewis Mumford whom you must have read at one time or other.
