Achieving Effective Arms Control
Achieving Effective Arms Control
By A Report of the Committee on International Arms Control and
New York City Bar Association, 1985, 180 pp

This is a comprehensive report, the result of a two-year study chaired by Stanley S. Resor, on today's major arms control issues. The recommendations call for an agreement to limit the Strategic Defense Initiative to research in return for major reductions in Soviet offensive nuclear weapons, including substantial reductions in land-based systems; strengthening the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty; prohibiting the testing of antisatellite weapons; ratification of the Threshold Test Ban Treaty and Peaceful Nuclear Explosions Treaty; and other measures affecting force reductions in Europe, chemical weapons, and nuclear nonproliferation. The result of extensive consultation with experts, the report is professional in context, clear in presentation.
