International Security Negotiations: Lessons Learned from Negotiating with the Russians on Nuclear Arms   [open pdf - 348KB]

Alternate Title: INSS Occasional Paper 62

"This paper examines arms control and non-proliferation negotiations during and after the Cold War. To make the analysis of this vast topic manageable, the discussion concentrates on negotiating with the Russians (recognizing that the USSR was more than Russia) and, primarily, on negotiations to eliminate or control nuclear arms. American Cold War policy was focused largely through the lens of how to contain and deter Russian expansion and aggression. The intense military competition was at the heart of this struggle, and the nuclear balance was at the heart of the military strategies on both sides. [...] The point of the discussion is not analysis for analysis' sake but to search for lessons that might be of value to American policy today and in the future."
