The effects of nuclear war by United States( Book )

34 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This assessment was made in response to a request from the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to examine the effects of nuclear war on the populations an economies of the United States and the Soviet Union. It is intended, in the terms of the Committee's request, to 'put what have been abstract measures of strategic power into more comprehensible terms.' The study examines the full range of effects that nuclear war would have on civilians: direct effects from blast and radiation; and indirect effects from economic, social, and political disruption. Particular attention is devoted to the ways in which the impact of nuclear war would extend over time. Two of the study's principal findings are that conditions would continue to get worse for some time after a nuclear war ended, and that the effects of nuclear war that cannot be calculated in advance are at least as important as those which analysts attempt to quantify"--Back cover
