Strategies of Arms Control: A History and Typology

Strategies of Arms Control: A History and Typology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In this groundbreaking analysis, Stuart Croft brings the subject of arms control into the era of complex, multipolar international relations. Moving beyond the narrow definitions of the phenomenon associated with the Cold War, he shows how it not only has a long past, but also a clear future. The author begins by tracing the history of agreements between polities over weapons back to ancient times. An understanding of this history allows him to put forward a typology of arms control. It occurs at the end of major conflicts, stabilizes balances between states, develops norms of behavior, manages weapons proliferation, and acts as a tool of international organizations. Croft examines the evolution of these five qualitatively different strategies, and applies the typology to arms control agreements in the post-Cold War world.
