The authors of this textbook suggest that the nuclear arms race is the “single most important activity on the face of the earth” (preface). The text is divided into three main sections. Part I examines the status of the world’s nuclear arsenal and its history. Part II explores the technical background of the nuclear arms race including introductions to major technical concepts and nuclear physics. Finally, Part III analyzes possible psychological and economic consequences of the nuclear arms race, and defenses against nuclear attack. The authors offer a section on ways to use the textbook, so readers can decide which sections to read based on their interests and levels of proficiency.
