Produced by scholars at the Brookings Institute, this book outlines a series of steps to reduce the numbers of nuclear weapons world wide from tens of thousands to hundreds with almost all fixed so they could not be used without warning. At the end of this dramatic reduction, the path toward total abolition would become more apparent. Part I of the book gives a summary of the deep cuts program. Part II focuses on the prevailing attitudes (in 1999) of the United States and Russia that will have to be overcome in order to restructure nuclear forces. Part III provides a description and analysis of the cuts. Part IV outlines the changes required for nuclear weapon states to make the final moves toward total nuclear disarmament.
