More than a decade after the end of the Cold War, the need to control the spread of arms remains clear, while the usefulness of traditional paradigms is increasingly called into question. The authors of Arms Control thoroughly review this complex topic, exploring differing approaches to arms control, successes and failures thus far, and the likelihood of future agreements. Ranging from the U.S. and Europe to Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, from conventional weapons to potential threats from outer space - and cyberspace - the book is designed to serve as an accessible introduction to the subject of arms control, as well as a convenient, comprehensive resource for any student of international affairs.
