Dauber assesses nuclear deterrence as a theory of persuasion, and examines the way deterrence discourse so shapes the thinking of policy makers and analysts that it still drives our analysis of alternatives, even in the post-Soviet era. She concludes that deterrence is a system designed to use weapons capabilities as a form of non-verbal communication with an Other.
