PUBLISHEROxford University Press

This history of the nuclear arms race traces its evolution from Roosevelt's decision to develop nuclear weapons to Reagan's decision to continue their development and production in the 1980s. Beginning with the Manhattan Project, the author covers the decision to use nuclear weapons against Japan, the debate on sharing nuclear information with allies, the effect of nuclear weapons on military and foreign policy of the United States, and the role of those weapons in arms control negotiations from the administrations of Truman through Reagan in 1986. The work is well documented with extensive end notes and presented in an interesting, readable style. Also included is an excellent, well organized bibliography.
