Nuclear Diplomacy and Crisis Management

Edited by Sean M. Lynn-Jones, Steven E. Miller and Stephen Van Evera




These essays from the journal International Security examine the effects of the nuclear revolution on the international system and the role nuclear threats have played in international crises. The authors offer important new interpretations of the role of nuclear weapons in preventing a third world war, of the uses of atomic superiority, and of the effectiveness of nuclear threats.
