The Demise of America's First Missile Defense System and the Rise of Strategic Arms Limitation

James Cameron

  • Uses transcripts and tapes of conversations between the three presidents and their closest advisors that sheds new light on their private deliberations and personal views regarding nuclear weapons
  • Reveals that Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon held very different views about nuclear weapons than those they they expressed in public
  • Argues that public opinion and Congress were far more important factors in nuclear decisionmaking than is usually acknowledged
