9 editions published between 1963 and 1999 in French and English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Strangelove is a scathing, controversial chronicle of a society gone haywire, its technology dominating and ultimately triumphing over humanity. What would happen if an insane, communist-hating U.S. Army general initiated a B-52 attack on the Soviet Union? And what would happen if the general committed suicide before deciphering the code that would recall the bombers? Furthermore, what would happen if the Russians themselves had their own doomsday device--a weapon with the power to eliminate the entire planet? In an attempt to arrive at the inevitable answers, Kubrick creates a frighteningly comic gallery of grotesque incompetents whose titanic ineptitude tickles the funny bone and sends chills up the spine." (UCLA)
