Bringing together essays covering 30 years of writing on the nuclear issue, this volume is elegant testimony to the efforts of George Kennan toward making mankind aware of the danger and limited political utility of these weapons.

Kennan has obviously been deeply troubled by the nuclear arms race, not least because of the way in which it has skewed relations with the East, and he of course. @article{osti_, title = {Nuclear delusion: Soviet-American relations in the atomic age}, author = {Kennan, G.F.}, abstractNote = {Speeches and papers which Kennan authored over a period of 35 years as a participant in American policymaking and statesmanship cover his early reflections on the atomic bomb, his later thoughts on the significance of the nuclear era to East-West relations.
