"This work will take its place as a standard and important reference work in the field.--"Stephen J. Cimbala, author of The Technology, Strategy, and Politics of SDI"Baucom has done some real spade work and has come up with the most thorough and likely most accurate version of events that I've seen or the closest we are likely to get for some time."--Gregg Herken, author of The Counsels of War and The Winning Weapon: The Atomic Bomb in the Cold War "This book is more than just an analysis of the events leading up to President Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative. It is a remarkably well-informed and clearly written account of ballistic missile defense in the whole post-war period. I think anyone interested in the history of American nuclear weapons policy will find this book very much worth reading."--Marc Trachtenberg, author of History and Strategy "Baucom's book is the best available record of the political process surrounding the creation of SDI, and it is a valuable resource for scholars seeking to understand U.S. defense decision making in the 1980s."--, b>American Historical Review"For the general reader interested in background and synthesis of U.S. ballistic missile defense efforts, this volume provides an excellent beginning."--Public Historian Baucom uses statistics, anecdotes, and a wealth of background material to bring life this topic."--Airpower Journal "Baucom--s book is the best available record of the political process surrounding the creation of SDI, and it is a valuable resource for scholars seeking to understand U.D. defense decision making in the 1980s."--American Historical Review "A valuable contribution to a surprisingly sparse literature on strategic defenses."--Political Science Quarterly
