V. Deterrence in a world without nuclear weapons

Chapter:
1. A world without nuclear weapons: fantasy or necessity?
Source:

Author(s):
James E. Goodby

Deterrence in its original meaning existed long before nuclear weapons were invented. It has always relied on a variety of diplomatic, economic, and military skills and capabilities. These tools will continue to exist after nuclear weapons are eliminated. It is arguable that the imponderables, the non-quantifiable elements of the psychological condition that is called deterrence, are more potent than the physical presence of weapons, including nuclear weapons.
