"In this well written and insightful study, Steve Cimbala demonstrates that even after the end of the Cold War, nuclear weapons still have a critical impact on peace and security. A must read for analysts and policymakers dealing with arms control and nuclear proliferation." -- Lawrence J. Korb, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress. "No author since Bernard Brodie and Henry Kissinger has done more to advance our understanding of nuclear weapons issues than has Stephen J. Cimbala. His latest foray into this intellectual thicket, Nuclear Weapons in the Information Age, continues in the same tradition. His discussion of the uneasy coexistence between nuclear and information-based weapons is path breaking and takes account of the importance of long range precision strike and cyber warfare issues. He breathes new life into the old topic of the interdependence of U.S.-Russian nuclear arms control, nonproliferation, and missile defense, and considers both their conceptual structures and policy implications. Well-written and insightful, this book will be interesting to both professional and lay audiences focused on these issues. It should be required reading for policy makers, yet will also be useful as a textbook for undergraduate or graduate classes in national security policy." -- John Allen Williams, Professor of Political Science, Loyola University Chicago, USA, and Chair and President, Inter-University Seminar on Armed Forces and Society (IUS).
