The military balance in the Cold War : US perceptions and policy, 1976-85 by David Walsh( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
"This book examines the impact of American perceptions of the military balance between the United States and the Soviet Union during the key period of 1976-85. That decade witnessed the decline of the US-Soviet Detente and the resurgence of superpower confrontation, often called the "Second Cold War." Dr. Walsh examines the full range of issues - strategic and European-based forces, power-projection capabilities, and military spending - and their role in shaping perceptions, not just of the military balance but also in such key areas of international relations as arms control, trans-Atlantic diplomacy and Third World conflict. In doing so, the author shows how the perceptions of the 1970s contributed to key policy decisions in the 1980s, which themselves played a significant role in bringing the Cold War to an end." "This book will be of interest to advanced students of Cold War history, Strategic Studies, US foreign policy and IR in general."--Jacket
