The War That Must Never Be Fought

Editors: George P. Shultz, James E. Goodby
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1845-3

The War That Must Never Be Fought is a collection of essays exploring how nuclear deterrence should be understood seventy years after the first nuclear explosions. The contributors examine nuclear deterrence from the vantage points of nations in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, all of which have some form of security relationship with the United States. The contributors challenge deterrence theories developed during the Cold War to show that a successful effort to reduce and eliminate the nuclear threat must be based on a combination of regional and global joint enterprises.
