Reviews provided by Syndetics


Books that examine nuclear weapons development, strategy, and arms control have flooded the market in the last few years. Schloming, fortunately, has prepared a work that stands out from the pack largely by aiding the reader in any way possible to comprehend often complex concepts and information-e.g., key terms are identified in the text in boldface type. Each chapter concludes with an excellent group of discussion questions and a carefully chosen list of suggested readings. Acronyms and technical terms are explained in a glossary at the end of the book. Although he faithfully reviews the necessary facts, Schloming does not steer away from offering his opinions on controversial questions. He takes great pains to present alternative views in a systematic fashion by including a ``counterpoint'' section in each of his chapters. Students and citizens interested in international relations, American foreign policy, and national security policy will find this book to be a useful resource in helping them to think more clearly about the unthinkable.-P. Watanabe, University of Massachusetts at Boston
