Review:

"This well-written, detailed work will be especially appropriate for college and university libraries, whose undergraduate and graduate students will benefit a great deal. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - Choice

"This two-volume history of the nuclear arms race since the 1930s aims to provide a global perspective rather than focusing on just the US-Soviet contest. The authors emphasize five key themes: political dimensions, technological developments, military and diplomatic strategies, and impact." - International Institute for Strategic Studies
