The United States and Soviet Union negotiated nuclear arms control agreements for over twenty years, with radical differences remaining in the concepts and appraoches to strategic stability and arms control. This book compares and contrasts those approaches using START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) as a case study. Not surprisingly, each side's agenda was dominated by weapon systems that figured prominently in the other's development program. The author concludes by summarizing and comparing American and Soviet quests for stability.
