In Beyond Deterrence, renowned political scientist Robert J. Art argues that the nuclear standoff between the United States and the Soviet Union was not the result of a rational calculation of costs and benefits, but rather a product of domestic political and economic factors. Art shows how the nuclear arms race was driven by the need to satisfy domestic constituencies, and how it has led to a world in which nuclear weapons are more likely to be used than ever before.

Art's analysis is based on a detailed examination of the history of nuclear weapons, from their origins in the Manhattan Project to the present day. He argues that the nuclear arms race has been a costly and dangerous mistake, and that it is time to move beyond deterrence and work towards nuclear disarmament.

Beyond Deterrence is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the dangers of nuclear weapons and the need for a new approach to nuclear policy.
