Foreword: "Upon communications hinges the fate of our modern world. A special "hot line" links the president of the United States with the premier of the Soviet Union. Satellites relay not only messages from man to man, but inform military leaders of atomic and rocket tests—and launchings. Television, newspapers, the telegraph keep whole nations informed o f world events and governmental decisions. If these systems were to fail—who can envisage the immense consequences?”
