Detailed But Not Overwhelming

“This entry in the Know Your Government series is of special and timely interest. In offering a history of the agency itself, the brisk text gives a clear sense of arms control efforts, particularly from the 1960s through the 1980s, placing negotiations and treaties firmly within the context of their times. Detailed but not overwhelming, this will be good background reading for the understanding of today’s international political and military crises.” (Sally Estes in Booklist, October 14, 1990)
