Decision Making in a Nuclear Middle East: Lessons from the Cold War

This book analyzes the implications of a nuclear Iran and Middle East by applying lessons from the Cold War. It takes a hard look at the assumed stability of the Cold War, the judgment of Soviet and American leaders, technology glitches, incidents and events that brought the superpowers closer to a nuclear exchange than they ever planned or expected. Of particular interest are the judgments, methods and processes used by those on the spot when false alarms raised fears that an adversary’s sneaky first strike was on its way. Analogies and analogical thinking come under close scrutiny to test presumed similarities between the Cold War and a future nuclear Middle East.
