Published during the Cold War, this book examines the technical and political problems associated with verification of arms control treaties and agreements. Following an introductory chapter, the author describes the capabilities and limitations of technology in verification. He then focuses on the role of politics in verification from both international and domestic perspectives. Next, he addresses the interplay between the technological and political factors, such as the legitimacy of verification measures and responses to non-complying states. The final chapter offers 12 general conclusions based on the preceding material. The verification of The Strategic Arms Limitations Treaties (SALT) is featured throughout. The book contains numerous illustrations and tables.
