Nuclear Heuristics: Selected Writings of Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter

Description:

Pioneers of nuclear-age policy analysis, Albert Wohlstetter (1913-1997) and Roberta Wohlstetter (1912-2007) emerged as two of America's most controversial, innovative and consequential strategists. Through the clarity of their thinking, the rigor of their research, and the persistence of their personalities, they were able to shape the views and aid the decisions of Democratic and Republican policymakers both during and after the Cold War. Although the Wohlstetters' strategic concepts and analytical methods continue to be highly influential, no book has brought together their most important published and unpublished essays--until now. Edited by Robert Zarate and Henry Sokolski. With short commentaries by Henry S. Rowen, Alain C. Enthoven, Richard Perle, Stephen J. Lukasik, and Andrew W. Marshall.
