This thoughtful book takes up the question of why Western policy, in particular American nuclear policy, has seemed so disconnected from understandings of Soviet doctrine-first expecting Soviet doctrine to converge with American, then reacting sharply when it didn't. It is food for thought as military relations change again, perhaps more than ever before in the postwar era.
