Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1965. American Edition. Presumed first printing thus. Hardcover. ix, , 265,  pages. Footnotes. DJ has some wear and soiling. Includes Preface to the American Edition, as well as chapters on Fifteen Years of Technological Revolution, 1945-60; The Strategic Theory Takes Shape; Europe and the McNamara Doctrine; The Independent French Deterent; The Future of the Atlantic Alliance; Logic and Paradoxes of the Strategic Theory; and Final Considerations. This book grew out of a course on the influence of nuclear weapons on international relations that Raymond Aron taught at the Institut d"etudes politiques in 1962-63. The book ends with a chapter on Final Considerations. In that final chapter the author tries to look ahead to four variables governing the future of the game of deterrence: The number of countries possessing atomic or thermonuclear weapons; The qualitative arms race, the possible political developments, involving either a realignment of nations, and the consistency or inconsistency of strategic doctrines. Originally written to explain the U.S. position to the French, the book is equally valuable for explaining it to Americans. Finally, and perhaps most vital ,Aron points out where Americans and Europeans have misinterpreted each other's views, and separates the unnecessary confusion from the real issues at stake for the Western allies.
