This book examines American perceptions of the Soviet Union as a communist state with nuclear capabilities. By studying images of both the Soviet Union and America, the author pieces together the political and diplomatic atmosphere of the Cold War. He analyzes nuclear policies, including deterrence and negotiation, for the U.S. Presidential administrations of John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan. Additionally, the book compares American traditions and politics of the 1960s through 1980s with the Soviet environment in order to clarify perceptions of the Soviet Union as a superpower. The book contains a large section of notes and sources.
