    Survival, the IISS’s bimonthly journal, challenges conventional wisdom and brings fresh, often controversial, perspectives on strategic issues of the moment.

    In this issue:

    • Hans Binnendijk and David C. Gompert assess that Sino-US talks on nuclear stability should start with a nuclear no-first-use declaration

    • Irene Mia argues that fiscal constraints might prevent new leftist governments in Latin America from implementing their policy pledges

    • Agnieszka Gehringer makes the case that the EU will benefit in the longer term from reducing its economic dependency on China

    • Jean-Yves Haine observes that the Ukraine crisis may be more dangerous than the Cuban Missile Crisis insofar as Vladimir Putin considers Ukraine strategically crucial to Russia

    • Cesare Merlini believes that the legacies of Henry Kissinger and Jean Monnet may help us to understand current trends in global affairs

    And six more thought-provoking pieces, as well as our regular Book Reviews and Noteworthy column.

    Editor: Dr Dana Allin

    Managing Editor: Jonathan Stevenson
