Year: 1992 Source: Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v.22, no.3, (Fall 1992), p.411 SIEC No: 19920493

Omnicide is defined by the authors as “world-wide numbness to the nuclear threat of annihilation”. They argue that domestic violence, pervasive drug abuse & escalating rates of suicide, especially among the young, are symptoms of a society in which nuclear retaliation is accepted as the final solution. The reviewer says that this book offers an explanation & avenues for futher research to people frustrated by the apparent lack of concern & action to avert a nuclear holocaust.
