FOREWORD
ONE OF the chief aims of the Institute for Strategic Studies is to analyse contemporary problems of international security and to make the results available in published form. The Control of the Arms Race is the Institute's second major contribution of this kind and follows NATOin the 1960's which was first published in February, 1960. In no way duplicating the work of governments, these studies are designed to render a useful service to both governments and private citizens alike. They are based on the meeting of a very wide range of experienced minds, but compiled on the principle that the ultimate assessment shall be exclusively that of the author.Those of us who have been associated with the development of the present volume during the past year are convinced that it deserves to make a considerable impact. This is because Mr Hedley Bull has compiled an analysis of the factors behind the present balance of terror with a lucidity, almost a ruthlessness, which has certainly not been surpassed on this side of the Atlantic. In America far more is written about this subject than in Western Europe, and much of the discussion is both better briefed and less emotional than it is here. Indeed, the one follows from the other. But even among the many American publications none covers the field from the angle that Mr Bull has chosen and none presents a clearer picture of the dilemma now confronting the human race.Mr Bull has been assisted by a study group at the Institute and by discussions held at the Institute's second annual conference, which met at Worcester College, Oxford, in September 1960, and took as its theme the draft of his study. The members of the study group included:
Richard Goold-Adams ( Chairman)
Alastair Buchan ( Director of the Institute)
Mark Bonham Carter
The Reverend Alan Booth
