Nuclear Blackmail and Nuclear Balance

Nuclear Blackmail and Nuclear Balance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In numerous crises after World War II-Berlin, Korea, the Taiwan Straits, and the Middle East-the United States resorted to vague threats to use nuclear weapons in order to deter Soviet or Chinese military action. On a few occasions the Soviet Union also engaged in nuclear saber-ratling. Using declassified documents and other sources, this volume examines those crises and compares the decisionmaking processes of leaders who considered nuclear threats with the commonly accepted logic of nuclear deterrence and coercion.
