GLC peace poster on the streets of London at the height of the Cold War between the USA and the USSR. A photomontage by Peter Kennard on nuclur weapons and mutually assured destruction or MAD- a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full scale use of high-yield weapons of mass destruction by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender. It is based on the theory of deterrence where the threat of using strong weapons against the enemy prevents the enemys use of those same weapons. In this case the Cold War stand off between Russia (USSR) and the west - Stefano Cagnoni - 1983-03-01
