As we move toward a necessary reexamination of the aims, means and proper role of arms control, this book is well timed in providing a comprehensive history of the record thus far. The text is knowledgeably grounded in the better writings of the past two decades. One need not fully accept the author's dichotomy between technical (American) and political (Soviet) approaches to arms control to find this book of considerable value.
