Presidents and Arms Control

Volume 1

Kenneth W. Thompson

The role of American presidents in the formulation and negotiation of arms control remains obscure and unclear, and this fact provides justification for the newest series of books from the Miller Center. Presidents and Arms Control addresses the milieu of arms control in the nuclear age and the decision-making style of presidents. In addition, this volume focuses on the negotiation of arms control agreements; the ratification process of treaties by the Senate; the potential role and limitations of the Arms Control Disarmament Agency; and the prospects for arms control and nonproliferation in Europe.
Contributors: Robert A. Strong, James E. Goodby, Sidney Graybeal, Patricia McFate, Paul H. Nitze, Major General William F. Burns, Michael Krepon, Janne Nolan, Duncan L. Clarke, and Jonathan Dean. Co-published with the Miller Center.
