Description

Reflecting the current debate about the value of traditional arms control in today's security environment, "Arms Control and Cooperative Security" thoroughly covers this complex topic. The authors critically review the historical record, highlight recent changes in the security arena, and consider the likelihood of new arms control agreements. Throughout, the discussion is presented in the context of international relations theory. The result is a comprehensive assessment of the present state and likely future of arms control and cooperative security - especially relevant as many of the treaties crafted during the Cold War are nearing their expiration dates.show more

This book is a must for personal and professional libraries and foreign policy and national security courses." - Paul R. Viotti, University of Denver"show more
