Who are owls? Unlike hawks who view weakness as a cause of war, or doves who see provocation as dangerous, owls are concerned about nonrational factors and loss of control. Nuclear war would not result from a deliberate act but from the unintended consequences of a crisis or conventional war. This lively volume builds upon the earlier Harvard book, Living with Nuclear Weapons. It includes a specific and eminently sensible list of "do's" and "don't's" covering many of today's principal arms control issues. The fresh approach to old problems should stimulate new-though not necessarily novel-thought.
