European Security In The 1990s: Deterrence And Defense After The Inf Treaty
European Security In The 1990s: Deterrence And Defense After The Inf Treaty
By Walter Laqueur and Leon Sloss
Plenum Press, 1990, 214 pp.

If this is the answer, what's the question? Readers wouldn't bother to find out except for the authors: Laqueur a distinguished scholar and Sloss an experienced former government official. Their book, a product of Los Alamos Laboratory's Center for National Security Studies, is a brief but thoughtful sweep across NATO's nuclear predicament; the other half of the book is useful source material. Their conclusion: there are military grounds but precious little political support for modernizing NATO's nuclear arsenal in Europe.
