Disarmament Study Series
The Naval Arms Race
The publication contains the report of the Group of Governmental Experts to Carry Out a Comprehensive Study on the Naval Arms Race, Naval Forces and Naval Arms Systems, which held four sessions from 1984 to 1985. The report describes the serious implications for international security represented by the increasing deployment at sea of strategic nuclear forces, by the numbers and extent of tactical nuclear weapons and by the recent introduction of long-range, sea-launched cruise missiles which would create further difficulties for the successful negotiation of nuclear disarmament measures.
