This book addresses the fundamental issues concerning the role of nuclear competition in East-West relations during the Cold War. The four major sections of the book address the Soviets and nuclear arms, the Americans and nuclear arms, the European nuclear powers (France and Britain), and finally, Soviet perspectives on the arms race. The effect of strategic policies of the United States on the role of nuclear weapons within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the reactions of the Soviet Union to those policies are described. The book is of interest to people seeking to understand the role of nuclear weapons in the Cold War.
