Historical Dictionary of Arms Control and Disarmament provides an overview of key themes and issues in international security and arms control, focusing on traditional and nontraditional efforts in the twentieth century to manage the spread and use of armaments and to prevent war. This book summarizes the rich and proud traditions of arms control and disarmament, their crucial role in ensuring a noncatastrophic course of history (especially during the Cold War), and their continuing relevance in the post-Cold War world. It also defines a broad perspective of key terms and captures the scope and range of application yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This dictionary chronicles personalities, events, and agreements and is a ready reference from which to launch a more extensive investigation. It includes a large dictionary of more than 1,000 key terms, a comprehensive bibliography, an extensive chronology, and a timeline. Historical Dictionary of Arms Control and Disarmament also provides information that is comprehensible to all readers. Jeffrey A. Larsen and James M. Smith present a context for the broader range of international relations at a given point in time, extending the utility of the dictionary beyond just a narrow examination of arms control.
