Martin E. Hellman

This page has links to op-ed's and other opinion pieces I have written, divided into areas of interest. These articles are different from my journal papers in that they have not undergone peer review and have a higher subjective content.

Those on "war and peace" are almost twenty years old and obviously need to be read in the context of the time at which they were written. If that is done, however, I think they still have much to offer.
