Hawks, Doves, and Owls: An Agenda for Avoiding Nuclear War (Paperback)
“A thorough and realistic treatment on the crucial issue of our time that should be given careful consideration by both policymakers and citizens.” —Henry Kissinger
The debate over national security and arms control has focused primarily on weapons—more or fewer weapons, different kinds of weapons. Hawks tend to see the immediate cause of war as one-sided weakness that tempts an aggressive adversary. For Doves, the primary cause of war lies in arms races that become provocative.
