Milestones in Strategic Arms Control, 1945–2000

Air University Press, Maxwell AFB, AL --
Book Cover - Milestones in Strategic Arms Control, 1945–2000
Milestones in Strategic Arms Control, 1945–2000
This compilation of 10 articles by frequently published arms-control experts captures the story of a young Air Force’s initial (and limited) impact on arms-control negotiations and outcomes. It documents a growing awareness by the service that it was better to help craft the US position than merely to be a passive recipient. This book also highlights the lesson the Air Force belatedly learned in the early days of arms control: that it has to plan and budget for treaty implementation as aggressively as it works to protect its equities during treaty negotiations. When a treaty goes into effect, the Air Force needs to be ready to execute its responsibilities to ensure complete and timely treaty compliance. Though the Air Force did not seize a prominent role in the early days of post-war arms control, it made up for it quickly and forcefully as it gained a fuller appreciation of what was at stake. [James M. Smith and Gwendolyn Hall, eds. / 2002 / 324 pages / ISBN: 1-58566-110-4 / AU Press Code: B-87]
