Description

A rigorous and objective ethical analysis of nuclear deterrence, this book provides a wide-ranging discussion of such important peace issues as possible holocaust, the Soviet menace, and strategic imperatives. The authors also unmask types of deterrence that they perceive as essentially moral evasions. Raising to a new level the moral, political, theological, and strategic debates surrounding deterrence, the volume ultimately concludes that it is an unjustifiable policy.
