Epigraph
Dedication
In memory of my grandfather Bishop J. Waskom Pickett
First words
Many Americans feared the future at the dawn of the nuclear age.
Quotations
The Soviet A-bomb test in August 1949 produced two fundamental changes in U.S. nuclear strategy. First, the Soviet Union's atomic weapons, rather than the "war-making" potential of its industries, now posed the greatest threat to the United States. Second, the traditional assumption that the United States could permit an aggressor to decide when and where to start a war, and still have sufficient strength to recover and mobilize for eventual victory, was severely challenged.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0691023263, Paperback)

In what Stanley Hoffmann, writing in The New York Review of Books, has called a "fine analysis and critique of American targeting policies," Sagan looks more at the operational side of nuclear strategy than previous analysts have done, seeking to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
