A guide to recent books on nuclear war, weapons, the peace movement, and related issues, with a chronology of nuclear events, Book Burns, G The Nuclear Present brings the interested reader up-to-date on significant English-language books about nuclear weapons and related topics, identifying primarily important works of nuclear non.

      Although the early chapters cover familiar ground, the post–Cold War ones provide fascinating insights into why there has been so much continuity in U.S. nuclear policy, including maintaining the “nuclear triad,” which allows weapons to be launched from land, sea, and air. Henry Kissinger's view on tactical nuclear war in his controversial book Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy was that any nuclear weapon exploded in air burst mode that was below kiloton in yield and thus averting serious fallout, may be more decisive and less costly in human lives than a protracted conventional war.

    Yet, is the Age of Nuclear Peace and the long-term efficacy of nuclear deterrence an illusion? Deterring nuclear war for 75 years, since , is not very long in the span of history. War and Peace in the Nuclear Age, first broadcast in , is a thirteen-part PBS series on the origins and evolution of nuclear competition between the United States and the former Soviet series examined the rivalry for power and how it shaped the diplomacy, negotiation, ethical debates, and doctrine of deterrence that ran through the forty-year history of the nuclear age.

Nuclear War. William H. Overholt, Editor. The North Korean nuclear crisis presents the contemporary world’s greatest risk, not just of major war but most importantly of nuclear war. Despite its importance the crisis is being managed. This chapter presents limited war, in both its conventional and tactical nuclear forms.

As the quantities of weapons at the disposal of the powers grow, the destructiveness of all-out nuclear war becomes absolute, total war ceases to constitute a rational course of action, and only limited war remains within the scope of rationality.

This study attempts to bring the debate about nuclear weapons and arms control up to date by assessing the reasons for the recent superpower agreement, the decline of the peace movements, the new threats to international stability and the prospects for further detente.

The possibility of testing doctrines of nuclear war has become even more remote; nuclear strategy will always bear the nature of conjecture without the possibility of actual corroboration.
