    Assuming a movement towards detente, East-West Arms Control assesses the role and relevance of arms control in an era of rapidly eroding bipolarity and East-West confrontation. It takes a sober look at the significance of what has been achieved so far, where the arms control process is currently heading and what prospects and challenges the Western Alliance will face.
