THE ARMS CONTROL AND DISARMAMENT REGIME UNDER GORBACHEV


THE ARMS CONTROL AND DISARMAMENT REGIME UNDER GORBACHEV

The book pursues to examine the hypotheses to provide a critical analysis of the Gorbachev era by looking into the renewed interest in arms control and disarmament that was mainly due to the initiatives taken by the Soviet Union. Gorbachev is “new thinking” and his fervent appeals to the US to enter into negotiations to halt the arms race has a given a new dimension to the process of arms control mechanism. The economic crisis in the Soviet Union was partially responsible for the unprecedented steps taken by Gorbachev in the field of arms control and disarmament. The book examines whether Strategic Defense Initiative Programme which was perceived by the Soviets as a component of a “winnable” nuclear theory--would jeopardise further talks in arms control between the US and the Soviet Union and that there was a change in the Soviet arms control policy under Gorbachev.
