Resource: Nuclear Heuristics

The Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) recently released a collection of the writings of Cold War strategists Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter. Both Wohlstetters were tremendously influential in the development of security studies as a serious intellectual and practical pursuit. Albert pioneered new methods of policy analysis and challenged establishment beliefs about deterrence and nuclear strategy, and Roberta wrote a pioneering study called Pearl Harbor: Warning and Decision that persuasively explained the intelligence failure that led to the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. Nuclear Heuristics: Selected Writings of Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter should be of use to anyone seeking to understand the development of modern strategic studies and its relation to current threats.
