An essential history for those interested in understanding the longstanding problem of nuclear-powered and nuclear-armed American submarines traversing sovereign Canadian waters, and the protest activity of pacifists determined to stop the practice, written by an ex-American journalist now living in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island. With black and white photos and maps.

Submarine Dead Ahead is the story of ordinary people trying to prevent such calamities...
It's this blend of wit and wisdom, this bringing together of news items we read over the years and then forget, that makes this book a great addition to your reading.
