In March 1986, The RAND Corporation, the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, the Institut Francais des Relations Internationales, and the Royal Institute of International Affairs sponsored a conference in San Diego, California, on Extended Deterrence and Arms Control. The conference brought together 22 prominent defense analysts and government officials from the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Great Britain, and the United States to address the continuing adequacy of and requirements for extended deterrence and related arms control issues. This report is a collection of conference papers, which have not been updated since March 1986 and thus do not account for changes in East-West relations and arms control.
This report is part of the RAND Corporation Report series. The report was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 1993 that represented the principal publication documenting and transmitting RAND's major research findings and final research.
