Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Like peasant farmers convinced that the looming volcano will never erupt because it never has, warns Cimbala (political science, Pennsylvania State U.-Delaware County), policy makers, theorists, and lay observers are dead wrong to be optimistic about the future of nuclear weapons, war, and politics. He identifies the major error as believing that nuclear weapons were not necessary to avoiding World War III, and so believing they are irrelevant now. Annotation c.
