Arms and Arms Control: A Symposium

Excerpt

The question of arms control and disarmament has attracted widespread attention in recent years. It has also become a matter of intense and continued study within the academic community. Perhaps for this reason, much of the available literature on the subject is of a specialized and technical nature.

As the subject is properly one of public interest, it appeared that a balanced section of readings from the increasing volume of literature would be of service both to laymen and to experts in other fields who wished to inform themselves about the nature and scope of the many problems involved. The concept of such a reader, and the task of editing it, were those of Mr. Ernest W. Lefever, a specialist in arms control and disarmament who served as a Research Associate with the Washington Center of Foreign Policy Research during the academic year of 1960-61.

The Washington Center of Foreign Policy Research is affiliated with the School of Advanced International Studies of The Johns Hopkins University. The purpose of the Center is to enable academicians and practitioners to conduct research, individually and as a group, on problems of international politics that are relevant to both the development of theoretical knowledge and the conduct of United States foreign policy.
