Abstract:

These chapters discuss where arms control has been, where it stands at present, and where, within the limits of our foresight, it appears to be headed. Collectively, they present a rich and stimulating survey of the history of arms control, its theoretical foundations, and its present and future challenges. Together with biographical sketches of some of those who have influenced the shape of modern arms control and a selection of recent treaties, these essays both illuminate and critique what may be a new era in arms control.--Résumé de l'éditeur.
