Several individuals and organizations stimulated and supported the preparation of this book. First and foremost we acknowledge the generosity of The Citadel Development Foundation, which provided funds for individual research, conference participation, and sponsorship of The Citadel Symposium on Arms Control and Nuclear Weapons, 1985. We are also indebted to Major General J.A. Grimsley (Ret.), President of The Citadel, and to Brigadier General G.F. Meenaghan, Vice President for Academic Affairs of The Citadel, for their encouragement and administrative support.
