About the Author
Praise For Arms and Influence…
“Extends his classic Strategy of Conflict to provide timely, timeless guidance for statecraft.”—Graham Allison, author of Nuclear Terrorism: the Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe
“Tom Schelling is the most significant nuclear strategist of the past half-century. Arms and Influence was essential reading for any serious student of the subject throughout the Cold War. With his new preface and foreword, Schelling demonstrates that in a world facing the threat of nuclear terrorism and belligerent states such as North Korea and Iran, his ideas and examples are vital if we are to continue ''the tradition of non-use'' of these ultimate weapons of devastation.”—Michael Nacht, University of California, Berkeley
"Tom Schelling helped shape the way we think about contemporary strategy and nuclear weapons. This important book demonstrates his originality, range, and rigor."—Lawrence Freedman, King''s College London
