From Library Journal: Berkowitz was an analyst with the CIA, while York, a distinguished physicist and nuclear weapons developer, was chief negotiator at the Comprehensive Test Ban talks under President Carter. Both see arms control as a means and not an end in itself. Arms control is necessary in our nuclear world but it has limitations that must be understood. York's autobiographical work indicates that it took him some 20 years to appreciate the need for a political solution to the arms race. His early years were devoted to pushing advanced technology at the Livermore Laboratory and as director of defense research and engineering under Eisenhower. Berkowitz sketches the history of arms control from the Washington Naval Conference of 1922 to the present. He sees arms control as essential in our high-tech nuclear age, both reducing the probability of war and decreasing the expense of the arms race. However, it can't stop the development of military technology as military applications can't be separated from technology itself. Both works are recommended for their fresh analysis on arms control, York's perspective as an insider, and Berkowitz's realistic viewpoint.Dennis Felbel, Univ. of Manitoba Libs., Winnipeg, Canada
