"Arms control is praised or damned but seldom is its history analyzed. This volume, commissioned by the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, is detailed in its analysis and uses the evidence of its cases to assess propositions frequently made about the effects of arms control. For instance, do arms control agreements lull the United States into spending less on defense? Not by the book's evidence—quite the contrary."
