When Nuclear Heartland was originally published in 1988, there were 1,000 land-based Minuteman missiles in six large missile fields, each with between 150 and 200 rockets. Today, three of the fields have been eliminated, but 450 missiles remain, each of which carries a 335-kiloton thermonuclear warhead with 20 times the power of the Hiroshima bomb.

The original Nuclear Heartland featured the first-ever publicly available maps and road directions to remote, unguarded missile sites and to their Launch Control Centers. The revised edition has updated maps, improved directions, and photos of the three remaining fields. New chapters also chronicle protests sparked by scandals caused by Air Force crews and recent calls from authoritative, high-level officials–not just from peace and disarmament organizations–for the total elimination of land-based ICBMs.
