Overview

With the signing of the intermediate-range nuclear forces (INF) treaty in December 1987, a chapter in NATO history came to an end. This agreement eliminated an entire class of nuclear weapons from Europe. This volume analyzes the possible repercussions of the INF treaty in the context of NATO's overall doctrine of flexible response, and concludes that the U.S. and NATO must adopt arms and arms control policies consistent with one another and with NATO doctrine. Co-published with the Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University.

Author Biography: Richard N. Haass is a lecturer in the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and CSIA Senior Research Associate.

Editorial Reviews

Christoph Bertram
While NATO strategists still suffer from the INF hangover, Richard Haass coolly and carefully examines the future options for the West. His analysis and proposals are a valuable contribution toward a new Atlantic consensus on strategy and arms control in the Gorbachev era.
Stanley Hoffmann
An eminently well-informed, realistic and sensible analysis, both of the reasons why NATO's strategy is unlikely to change and of the reasons why arms control in Europe after the INF agreement could turn out to be very difficult.
