Canada and the Nuclear Arms Race

by Ernie Regehr

foreword by Margaret Laurence

edited by Simon Rosenblum

A Cold War era report on the nuclear arms race between the US and the USSR. Several of Canada's experts on the nuclear arms race critique Canada's role in this crisis.

First published in 1983, this book reports from the middle of the nuclear arms race, when the world's two superpowers, the US and the USSR, were adding increasingly sophisticated weapons to their arsenals, reaching a point where they could effectively wipe each other out many times over. Some of Canada's most distinguished critics of the nuclear arms race examine this drift to annihilation, show how Canada was contributing to it, and explain the policies that Canada could have adopted to encourage the reversal of the arms race.
