Nuclear Deterrence: The Wohlstetter-Blackett Debate Re-visited

2014-04-16

The Cold War debate between Albert Wohlstetter and Patrick Blackett over the requirements of effective deterrence is of profound relevance half a century later. The two thinkers offered systematic arguments for their maximalist (Wohlstetter) and minimalist (Blackett) positions.
