Naval Arms Control

Edited by:

November 1990 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The ongoing restructuring of East-West relations has renewed interest in naval arms control. This impressive volume examines current changes in naval force postures and provides a powerful analysis of military developments in Northern waters. Aims, approaches, and procedures of naval arms control are presented, making clear the choice between negotiated arms control and unilateral changes in naval strategy. In addition, contributors also offer specific proposals for and against arms control (both for conventional and nuclear naval forces). Naval Arms Control will be of special interest to students and scholars in political science, international relations, and peace studies. "I could never agree with all the opinions expressed, but there is no doubt that some of these academics argue very persuasively, and make one think. To make one think and ponder about such matters seems to me to be the primary function of this sort of book." --The Naval Review
