Abstract:

Senator Nunn stands out among American leaders as a spokesman for a strong defense who recognizes, as Churchill did, that defense must not be considered an end in itself but as it relates to foreign policy objectives. Senator Nunn has made an important contribution to arms control through innovative proposals for such arrangements as risk reduction centers. The breadth of his foreign policy thinking goes beyond defense. In this book, the reader can trace Senator Nunn's views on a variety of arms control issues in the 1980s. What is most striking is the consistency of his approach and the continuity of his thought.
