About the Author:

James G. Blight is the assistant director for Harvard University's Center for Science and International Affairs.

Review:

. . . this study is original and important . . . (Foreign Affairs)

Psychologist James Blight has written a book that is an extraordinarily accurate and insightful account of the Cuban missile crisis. I remember well the fear of which he writes so persuasively. (Robert S. McNamara, Secretary of Defense under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson (1960–1968))

Blight's book . . . also holds true for the Soviet leadership. I recommend this book to everyone who wants a taste of what it was like in those momentous days in the White House, and . . . in the Kremlin. (Sergei Khrushchev)

Blight offers a fresh analysis of the crisis and draws new, policy-relevant conclusion. (Armed Forces Journal International)

A superb book. One is tempted to recommend this elegantly written, intense book for all users. Blight marries the disciplines of psychology, literature, and political science into what is perhaps the most intriguing study of the Cuban missile crisis yet to appear....The argument is provocative, the writing superb, and the lesson important. (CHOICE)
