Walt begins the book by discussing the history of nuclear weapons. He argues that the United States' nuclear monopoly after World War II led to a sense of complacency among American policymakers. This complacency, Walt argues, has led to a number of dangerous policies, including the development of new nuclear weapons and the deployment of nuclear weapons in Europe.

Walt then turns to the present day. He argues that the United States' nuclear arsenal is no longer a credible deterrent against nuclear attack. This is because other countries, such as Russia and China, have developed their own nuclear weapons. As a result, the United States is now more likely to be the target of a nuclear attack than it was during the Cold War.

Walt concludes the book by calling for a new approach to nuclear policy. He argues that the United States should reduce its nuclear arsenal and that it should work to create a nuclear-free world. Walt believes that this is the only way to prevent a catastrophic nuclear war.

The New Shape of Nuclear Danger: American Empire Project is a timely and important book. Walt provides a clear and concise overview of the dangers of nuclear weapons and he offers a compelling argument for a new approach to nuclear policy. This book is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about the future of nuclear weapons.
