Abstract:

"Since the World War II, critics have warned us about the futility of a new war that would be fought with nuclear arms and about the dangers involved in relying on such weapons. Yet those who call for nuclear disarmament have nearly always been dismissed as naive and uninformed about the Soviet foreign policy. In The Nuclear Delusion, America's pre-eminent Soviet expert explains why the nuclear arms race has never been based on a fully realistic assessment of the Soviet Union; how its acceleration and the reliance on nuclear deterrence constitute a disastrous policy; and why a sober view of Russian-American relations today demands its immediate cessation."--Jacket.
