Editorial Reviews

Review

“Extends his classic Strategy of Conflict to provide timely, timeless guidance for statecraft.”—Graham Allison, author of Nuclear Terrorism: the Ultimate Preventable Catastrophe
(Graham Allison)

“Tom Schelling is the most significant nuclear strategist of the past half-century. Arms and Influence was essential reading for any serious student of the subject throughout the Cold War. With his new preface and foreword, Schelling demonstrates that in a world facing the threat of nuclear terrorism and belligerent states such as North Korea and Iran, his ideas and examples are vital if we are to continue 'the tradition of non-use' of these ultimate weapons of devastation.”—Michael Nacht, University of California, Berkeley
(Michael Nacht)

"Tom Schelling helped shape the way we think about contemporary strategy and nuclear weapons. This important book demonstrates his originality, range, and rigor."—Lawrence Freedman, King's College London
(Lawrence Freedman)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Recently I ordered a chinese translation of this book from Mainland China, but it was translated according to the 1966 edition.This English edition has a new preface and afternoon by the author, thus updating the book. The book is still worth reading today, as North Korea has recently held a nuclear bomb test and it reminds us that nuclear threat is still with us. Mr. Schelling's analysis helps us to understand the delicate situation today.

Although a classic in the field (political sciences), some parts and opinions expressed in it are no longer valid or up to date.
