Abstract:

This paper was prepared for the Conventional Arms Control Policy Panel of the United Nations Association of the U.S.A. It draws on a related paper prepared for the conference on The Impact of New Technologies on U.S. Defense Planning for Non-Nuclear Conflict, sponsored by the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, held in Boston in the fall of 1974. The present paper deals much more extensively with the interrelation between the new precision weapons and theater nuclear warfare, with the prospects for using the new technologies for the defense of smaller states, with current trends in arms transfers, and with prospects for new forms of conventional arms agreements.
