The peace has yet to be won, and pressing problems of armaments still confront the United States and the United Nations. How shall Germany be prevented from re-arming? What shall be the form of international control of atomic energy for military purposes? To what degree, indeed, can proponents of disarmament hope to attain their objectives in the face of conflicting national interests? In this book, Merze Tate presents a well-balanced history and critique of the part the United States government has played or failed to play, in the movement for a limitation of armaments from the days of the founding fathers into 1947. It is the only complete and thorough survey of American armament and disarmament policy, and is of timely importance to all students of international relations and American diplomatic history.
