This book explores the history of the nuclear non-proliferation dialogue between Russia (USSR) and the United States. By looking into the particulars of bilateral cooperation on NPT, Cooperative Threat Reduction program, arms control, and other issues, the authors offer lessons to be learned in preventing nuclear confrontations in the future. The book has been prepared in coordination between Russian and American scholars and experts and is a result of a series of Track 2.5 events devoted to restoring the non-proliferation cooperation between Russia and the United States. Covering all the aspects of the bilateral partnership since 1960 until today, this book will interest scholars of great power conflicts and non-proliferation.
The workshop and the consequent work on the monograph became possible thanks to generous organizational & financial support from Centre Russe d`etudes politiques (Geneva) and the Center for Policy Studies in Russia (Monterey, USA).
