The two words – “nuclear deterrence” – remain ludicrously attractive to policy classes who learned to love the nuke from its inception. The nuke is paternally comforting, a stabilising. A text on the traditional questions of nuclear deterrence and the unconventional answers suggested by the emerging new world order.

The essays present rival ideas about the morality of alternative means for preserving mutual security as the world moves beyond the Cold War.

This illustrates the impotence of nuclear deterrence in preventing conventional conflict—the Yom Kippur War was the most intense episode of combat in the world since the Battle of Kursk in The more recent example of the Kargil War, a limited conflict between two nuclear armed states, reinforces this point.
