This new edition of a very current interdisciplinary book covers both technical material and social issues, to give readers of all backgrounds a sense of the overall implications of the arms race. Weapons are the primary focus of the book, with the history of their development and nuclear politics included in the introductory chapters.

There is a thorough discussion of global nuclear exchange. Traces the development of nuclear weapons, describes the energy and blast effects produced by an atom bomb, and discusses civil defense, nuclear strategies, and the economic impact of the arms race From inside the book.

The nuclear arms race was an arms race competition for supremacy in nuclear warfare between the United States, the Soviet Union, and their respective allies during the Cold this very period, in addition to the American and Soviet nuclear stockpiles, other countries developed nuclear weapons, though none engaged in warhead production on nearly the same scale as the two superpowers.

The arms race, in particular the nuclear weapons competition between the Soviet Union and the US, threatens the very existence of man's civilization. One must admit, albeit reluctantly, that the nuclear balance between these two powers deserves at least partial credit for the absence of all‐out hostilities for the longest period in recent history.

He is the co-author with William J.

Traditional military concepts of superiority and effectiveness (as embodied in Lanchester’s law) have little relevance to thermonuclear weapons, with their enormous effectiveness in destruction of society.

Few are needed to saturate their deterrent effect, but their military effectiveness is limited. The evolution and future of strategic nuclear forces is discussed, and their declining.

An American monopoly on nuclear weapons would make Russia more manageable from a political standpoint.

It was this kind of tension that sparked a nuclear arms race, a frantic era in which several nations tested a myriad of nuclear technology and stockpiled thousands of nuclear warheads in an effort to get ahead of one another.

In the s, U.S. President Ronald Reagan revived cold-war policies and rhetoric, referring to the Soviet Union as the "evil empire" and escalating the nuclear arms race; some have argued this stance was responsible for the eventual collapse of Soviet Communism while others attribute its downfall to the inherent weakness of the Soviet state.

With a new nuclear arms race emerging between the US, Russia and China, von Hippel continues to make the case for reducing and ending the enormous dangers posed by nuclear weapons, and is working to recruit and train a new generation of physicists.

The arms race has an important scientific and technological component; but it inevitably also involves political problems. In thinking about the arms race, physicists tend to emphasize the quantitative aspects, while policy makers and society as a whole focus on the political choices.

A personal experience of teaching a course on the nuclear arms race to non‐science students is. Nuclear Energy, Nuclear Weapons Proliferation, and the Arms Race. Hollander, Jack, Ed.

Jungerman and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Mutually assured destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender (see pre-emptive nuclear strike and second strike).

It is based on the theory of deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons. The demand for such information, and the power that comes with it, is driving a technology arms race. Q: What is the second nuclear age. I define the era after the Cold War as the second nuclear age.

Research into nuclear energy led to nuclear power stations, but it also led to a nuclear arms race that almost led the world to the brink of extinction. AI creates problems of similar, or of even greater, magnitude.

When the recent developments in U.S. and Russian nuclear forces are compared to recent official U.S. reporting on China's nuclear delivery systems, they indicate that what used to be a U.S-Russian strategic and theater nuclear arms race is.
