The INF treaty signed between the United States and the Soviet Union in December 1987 is a milestone in the history of East-West arms relations. The profound changes which occurred within Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union during the closing years of the 1980s had direct links with equivalent changes in the East-West political environment. This has resulted in the resurgence of negotiated arms control as a principal activity in working towards establishing a new East-West relationship. br br b /b b i East-West Arms Control /i /b covers a wide range of issues, from the role of arms control after the INF treaty to NATO strategy and alliance behavior. It includes domestic and alliance politics and the technical treatment of arms control matters. The book takes a sober look at the significance of what has been achieved so far, where the arms control process is currently heading, and what prospects and challenges the Western Alliance will face.
