Synopsis

Level 7 is the diary of Officer X-127, who is assigned to stand guard at the "Push Buttons," a machine devised to activate the atomic destruction of the enemy, in the country's deepest bomb shelter. Four thousand feet underground, Level 7 has been built to withstand the most devastating attack and to be self-sufficient for 500 years. Selected according to a psychological profile that assures their willingness to destroy all life on Earth, those who are sent down may never return. Long before the first button is pushed in error, we are made aware that this literary classic is about much more than the nuclear threat. Level 7 is a probing inquiry into what gearing for war does to a society when there is no war. While it is a horrific vision of where the nuclear arms race may be leading us, this novel is also a call to change and an affirmation of human life and love.
