Nuclear weapons have been a central element of American foreign and military policy since the Cold War began. Indeed, much of the warp and woof of the Soviet-American rivalry has been translated into domestic debate about our nuclear arsenal, its form, its relationship to other elements of policy, and the uses to which it should be put. If the rivalry, which was the essence of the Cold War, is now to undergo a radical decline in importance, may we expect that those weapons which so distinguished that rivalry will recede from our concerns in parallel? Will the end of the Cold War mean the denuclearization of American policy?
