Special Report Series publications take different forms: background studie... more »s of crisis areas; examination of assumptions, problems and research gaps related to United States policy; exploration of options which may confront policy makers. In each case the objective is to clarify and illuminate available choices without recommending specific policies.
The subject of arms control and disarmament is highly controversial and involves many problems with important policy implications. Whether to disarm, to what degree, and under what circumstances - these are the questions of paraount importance to the Congress, to the executive branch, and to the public at large.
Opinions are sharply divided on these and other questions. The variety of solutions offered and the intensity with whichg they are advanced point to the need for defining the issues, the varying assumptions and the basic problems.
The aims of this report are to identify basic issues, to discover research and information gaps, and to stimulate research and writing to fill those gaps. It is hoped that this will contribute to a better understanding of one of the compelling policy problems of our time.« less
