This book addresses the transnational networks developed by citizens in the United States and the Soviet Union to promote ideas and policies that would reduce the danger of a superpower conflict during the Cold War. Physicians and scientists often took the lead in those activities that had a great effect in slowing the arms race. Using sources that became available after the end of the Cold War, the author provides a history of the Soviet-American arms race that includes new views on the course of the Cold War and its termination. After an introductory section, the book is divided into four major components; the Khrushchev Era, the Brezhnev Era, the Gorbachev Era and the Post-Soviet Era.
