Fred Cuny was a brilliant scientist and inventor who was also one of the most daring and adventurous men of his time. In the early 1950s, he was one of the first people to suggest that the world was in danger of a major environmental disaster. Cuny was also one of the first people to propose that we could save the world by using thermonuclear weapons to stop the spread of communism.
In the autumn of 1954, Cuny disappeared after travelling to Mexico to meet with a powerful politician who was interested in his ideas. His family and friends have never been able to find out what happened to him.
Scott Anderson's gripping new book tells the story of Cuny's life and mysterious disappearance, revealing the forces that opposed him and the dangers he faced as he tried to save the world.; 8vo; 374 pages; FSA.
