“Comprehensive, imaginative and important.... This unique volume addresses simultaneously the complex issues of morality, diplomacy, and vulnerability in the arm control process. The reader is bound to be both challenged and educated.”–Zbigniew Brzezinski

“Dr Kintner’s superb academic and diplomatic credentials have been brought to bear on the complex and uncertain subject of arms control with first-rate results. This volume, with contributions from a host of scholars and practitioners of the negotiating art, is replete with insight and wisdom. While it is unlikely that all the judgments of the various contributors will be shared by all readers, it is must reading as the pace of arms control negotiations with the Soviet Union accelerates.”–Lawrence S. Eagleburger

With Mikhail Gorbachev at the helm, Soviet strategy is to press an instensive and continuous campaign about the need for U.S.-Soviet arms control agreements. This volume addresses a dilemma for the American people: Is the Soviet Union’s program for peace in reality a form of war?
