The U.S. Arms Control and Disarmarment Agency

Throughout the important treaty negotiations that shaped U.S. nuclear policy in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA) played a key role, even leading the U.S. delegation to talks such as SALT I and II. This book examines ACDA’s involvement in negotiating such arms control agreements as the Limited Test Ban Treaty and the Biological Weapons Convention Agreement; in creating a nuclear-free zone in Latin America; and in inspecting Soviet weapons facilities.
