Declassified Documents on U.S. Nuclear Policy

U.S. Nuclear History, 1969-1976: Weapons, Arms Control, and War Plans in an Age of Strategic Parity

“This compilation details the nuclear weapons policies of the Nixon and Ford administrations – a critical period in the nuclear age and vital for understanding the current global arena. With the USSR reaching strategic parity, Nixon and Ford pursued a policy of achieving technological advantage, supporting arms talks, and making nuclear threats more credible by developing limited alternatives to catastrophic nuclear exchanges.”
