    Sakharov the Bear is the fifth novel in author John Ellsworth's wonderful Michael Gresham legal thriller series (I have reviewed the prior four). This novel is very different from any legal thriller I have read or listened to; it is so unusual as to not be credible. In this book Sakharov explores what the nuclear age means to man and how we can prevent our own destruction. He goes beyond exploring measures for the prevention of nuclear war and explores all areas of global life. Human civilization is threatened by, on top of nuclear war, famine, "stupefaction from the narcotic of mass culture.
