Summary
  • "Cold War Statesmen Confront the Bomb: Nuclear Diplomacy Since 1945 uses biographical techniques to test one of the most important and widely debated questions in international politics: Did the advent of the nuclear bomb prevent the Third World War?"--BOOK JACKET. "Many scholars and much conventional wisdom assumes that nuclear deterrence has prevented major power war since the end of the Second World War; this remains a principal tenet of US strategic policy today. Others challenge this assumption, and argue that major war would have been 'obsolete' even without the bomb."--Jacket
  • "This book tests these propositions by examining the careers of ten leading Cold War Statesmen - Harry Truman; John Foster Dulles; Dwight Eisenhower; John F. Kennedy; Josef Stalin; Nikita Krushchev; Mao Zedong; Winston Churchill; Charles De Gaulle; and Konrad Adenauer - and asking whether they viewed war, and its acceptability, differently after the advent of the bomb."--Jacket
