Nuclear Arms Control: Background and Issues

By The National Academy of Sciences
National Academy Press, 1985
378 pp. $16.50

This book is proof that the complexities of arms control can be successfully explained in a nontechnical, and even more importantly, nonpartisan manner. Sponsored by a distinguished committee of the National Academy of Sciences, it presents the key issues in a clear, thorough and remarkably up-to-date way, giving equal space to the principal opposing sides of the debates on such questions as strategic offensive and defensive arms control, intermediate-range nuclear force negotiations, the nuclear test ban and nonproliferation. It can be strongly recommended as a primary source for classroom and public discussions, although it should be supplemented by statements of opinion on the various issues.
