About this book

In this book, Michael Krepon analyzes nuclear issues such as missile defenses, space warfare, and treaties, and argues that the United States is on a dangerous course. During the Cold War, Mutual Assured Destruction, or MAD, facilitated strategic arms control. Now that the Cold War has been replaced by asymmetric warfare, treaties based on nuclear overkill and national vulnerability are outdated and must be adapted to a far different world. A new strategic concept of Cooperative Threat Reduction is needed to replace MAD. A balance is needed that combines military might with strengthened treaty regimes.

MICHAEL KREPON is the Founding President of the Henry L. Stimson Center. He is the author and editor of eight books, including Strategic Stalemate, Nuclear Weapons and Arms Control in American Politics, Arms Control in the Reagan Administration, The Politics of Arms Control Treaty Ratification, Crisis Prevention, Confidence Building, and Reconciliation in South Asia, and Global Confidence Building: New Tools for Troubled Regions.

Reviews

'Michael Krepon's book offers a timely and incisive overview of the current debate on missile defences...the chapters emphasising the importance of cooperative threat reduction in addressing the dangers associated with arms proliferation and the rise of asymmetric warfare shoudl be required reading for academics and policymakers in the field.' - Ricardo Richards, Cambridge Review of International Affairs
