The Guide to Nuclear Deterrence in the Age of Great-Power Competition Handbook

The “Guide to Nuclear Deterrence in the Age of Great-Power Competition” brings together twenty-two authors who dissect the complex strategic environment and explain how credible nuclear capability is the bedrock of America’s defense. To be credible, America must compete as Russia and China modernize to challenge international norms. This thought-provoking book will answer the reader’s question, “why does nuclear deterrence matter to me?”
