Includes chapters on The Logic of Going Nuclear; Israeli Security and Nuclear Weapons; Israel, Nuclear Weapons, and Peace; The Risks of a Nuclear Middle East; and the Superpowers' Response to a Nuclear-Armed Israel. Also includes Epilogue, as well as Notes, Bibliography, and Index. This work examines the risks and benefits that may be involved in a possible shift of emphasis in Israel's political-military strategy-- from one dominated by principles of conventional defense--offense to one of overt nuclear deterrence. The risks and benefits that may be involved in instituting the proposed changes in Israel's strategy are examined from an Israeli viewpoint. The implications of this shift for regional and global stability are also examined because of their direct effect on Israel's security and well-being. The study revolves around three central questions. First: Will the adoption of a nuclear-deterrence posture deter the Arab states from posing strategic challenges to Israel's survival? Would such a posture ensure Israel's security? Second: To what extent would a nuclear posture deter or reduce lower levels of warfare such as limited conventional war, a war of attrition, or guerrilla warfare? To what extent would such a posture offer Israel peace? Third: What type of nuclear-deterrence posture must Israel adopt to maximize the odds of peace and security? To what extent must the posture be overt and explicit in order to be effective?
