about

Nuclear deterrence requires objective ethical analysis. In providing it, the authors face realities - the Soviet threat, possible nuclear holocaust, strategic imperatives - but they also unmask moral evasions - deterrence cannot be bluff, pure counterforce, the lesser (or greater) evil, or astep towards disarmament. They conclude that the deterrent is unjustifiable and examine the new question of conscience that this raises for everyone.
