Although Bruce’s formal academic training and professional experience are in areas outside the scope of nuclear weapons, history, war, anthropology, psychology, law, and political science, his passion for this subject has inspired him to study these areas in order to find the answers to these questions:
Is mankind becoming less warlike or more warlike?
Why don’t enlightened men control their aggressive tendency that leads to violence?
Why do people turn away from confronting these vital issues of WMDs, genocide, and terrorism?
Why have our methods of preventing war and maintaining peace failed to do so?
Why can’t the UN preserve world order?
How can dictators and despots perpetrate inhumane acts and genocide without being brought swiftly to international justice?
If people do not have the legal right to resort to violence in order to protect their interests, why do nations have the right to use violence when protecting their national interests?
Can terrorism be fought without a war?
Why do civil wars rage within nations without international intervention?
Is there a more effective system of international justice?
