A most valuable survey of the important revolution now underway in the technology of non-nuclear weapons. The "smart bombs" used in the closing stages of the Vietnam War and the antitank guided missiles employed in the Yom Kippur War are forerunners of a new generation of "precision-guided munitions." The authors examine the political as well as the strategic implications of the new defense technologies in a non-polemical and yet intellectually provocative manner.
