Exploring how the United States manages its still-powerful nuclear arsenal
Arms control agreements and the end of the Cold War have made the prospect of nuclear war a distant fear for the general public. But the United States and its principal rivals--China and Russia--still maintain sizable arsenals of nuclear weapons, along with the systems for managing them and using them if that terrible day ever comes.
Managing U.S. Nuclear Operations in the 21st Century focuses on how theories and policies are put into practice in managing nuclear forces in the United States.
