about

The Cold War may be over, but you wouldn't know it from the tens of thousands of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons of mass destruction still held by Russia, the United States, and other world powers. Arguing that the time has come to dispense with incremental approaches to arms control, Admiral Stansfield Turner, the former head of the CIA and an experienced senior military commander, proposes a practical yet safe plan—strategic escrow—that would move the world into a new and secure millennium. The paperback edition of this widely acclaimed work has been updated to consider the implications of such a build-down if applied to non-nuclear weapons of mass destruction. Specifically, Admiral Turner details how a plan for weapons reduction could be carried out for biological and chemical weapons and what tactical and strategic differences exist between de-escalation of nuclear and non-nuclear weapons.
Stansfield Turner is the former head of the CIA and an experienced senior military commander. He is the author of Secrecy and Democracy and Terrorism and Democracy.

If the cold war is over, why are there still tens of thousands of nuclear and chemical weapons in the hands of the world powers? Caging the Genies examines realistic approaches to weapons reduction. Author Stansfield Turner, the former head of the CIA, argues that the time has come for arms control. This is an informative and practical look at the de-escalation of nuclear and non-nuclear weapons.
