The rapid changes in Europe have not left these books unscathed, but all are written by distinguished analysts and all remain useful. The book by Davis is a brief, readable primer to the arms control issues, nuclear and strategic, confronting the United States and its European allies. Epstein, half of whose book is tables, meticulously assesses how the balance of conventional forces in Europe would be affected by various arms control agreements. The purposes of Blechman and his colleagues are broader, looking at political as well as military stakes in arms negotiations.
