Stephen I. Schwartz is the editor of the Nonproliferation Review, the journal of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. He is the author, most recently, of Nuclear Security Spending: Assessing Costs, Examining Priorities (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 2009).

From 1998 to 2005, Mr. Schwartz served as publisher and executive director of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the public interest magazine best known as the keeper of the iconic and symbolic minutes-to-midnight “doomsday clock.” From 1994 to 1998, he was a guest scholar with the Foreign Policy Studies Program at the Brookings Institution, where he directed the US Nuclear Weapons Cost Study Project.

Before joining Brookings, Mr. Schwartz was the Washington representative for the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability—a national network of more than thirty organizations addressing nuclear weapons production and environment, health, and safety issues surrounding the Department of Energy’s nuclear weapons complex—and the first legislative director for nuclear campaigns at Greenpeace USA.

A regular commentator and analyst, Mr. Schwartz has appeared on “60 Minutes,” BBC World News, National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and “Talk of the Nation,” Public Radio International’s “The World” and “To the Point,” American Public Media’s “Marketplace” and “Marketplace Morning Report,” CNN, and in several documentaries broadcast on the History Channel, the National Geographic Channel, and the Learning Channel.
