Beschreibung

Return to Armageddon covers the extraordinary years spanning the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations, a period when the United States, through its victory in the Cold War, led the world away from the brink of nuclear annihilation, and then slowly became aware of the increased threat of nuclear confrontation in a world more splintered than ever before and more at the mercy of fanatics and zealots.

Pressestimmen

"An exhaustive yet engrossing account of two decades of effort to control the nuclear menace. The author details a painful process, buoyed by an occasional breakthrough--the elimination of intermediate range nuclear missiles under President Reagan and the substantial cut in tactical nuclear weapons under President Bush--but effectively blocked in the Clinton years by hostile Senate leadership and infatuation with the myth of missile defense."--Paul C. Warnke, former Director of U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency
"This compact volume identifies the key themes and turning points in U.S. nuclear weapon and nuclear arms control policy over the past two decades, giving timely insight into the decisions that have kept the nuclear 'fate of the earth' hanging in the balance. A good source for students and journalists, and a fast-reading, illuminating history for any concerned citizen."--Randall Forsberg, Director, Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies
"An accomplished historian of the nuclear arms race in its early years, Ronald Powaski has produced a thorough, up-to-date, and well-written study of the nuclear arms race during the last two decades of the twentieth century. He cogently analyzes U.S. policy in the 1980s and 1990s and assesses the risks of nuclear catastrophe in the coming years."--Peter L. Hahn, Ohio State University
