Abstract : This paper brings a holistic appreciation of the problems and opportunities of arms control to the particular issue-area of proposals for naval arms control. This multi-level analysis treats what may be characterized as the policy, strategic, operational, tactical, and technological areas of concern--all with reference to national and international security. Two principal purposes drive this analysis: first, to provide a conceptual framework suitable for the assessment of naval arms control; and second to review briefly some leading proposals for naval arms control. Keywords: Naval planning; Arms control; United States; National Security; Military force levels; Military strategy; USSR.
