Newhouse quotes two professors of government who have studied the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks. Invoking the old penguin chestnut, one asked the other if he didn't now know more about SALT than he cared to? His colleague answered, ""I've learned more about SALT than there is to know."" This book by Newhouse leaves one with the former sentiment unless there is great prior interest in the technicalities of arms limitations and the history of SALT's coming to be. Newhouse cogitates about the political implications, but it is hard to get an overview of the bargaining strategies amid all the chips. The fact does emerge that Brezhnev, in his yearning for detente, has made more concessions than Nixon in the agreements signed last year. How SALT fits into the general Nixon-Kissinger policymaking system is examined; when Nixon finally picked up the question of arms limitation talks after the Czech invasion had aborted earlier plans, he was displeased to see that an ad hoc crew of middling bureaucrats had developed a negotiating stance tailored to the Joint Chiefs' views. As a series of, say, New Yorker pieces the book would be delightful. And it certainly has merit as a documentary and a touchstone for debate. At a sitting; though, its input overkills.

This is the story of the first major bilateral nuclear arms control agreement negotiated between the two superpowers, SALT I, which consisted of two separate agreements: the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and the Interim Agreement on Offensive Weapons (aka SALT I). Newhouse, who seems to have had excellent sources in both the Pentagon and the Nixon administration, divides his narrative into five natural chapters. The first describes what was at stake in the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks and how esoteric the issues involved were for most people not involved in arms control or nuclear strategy. The second chapter is the story of how ABM programs got started in both the United States and the Soviet Union in the mid-1960s and how this led to the incentive for arms control. The third chapter covers how SALT originated during the Johnson administration in 1967-68 but was sidelined by the Soviet/Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in August 1968. The fourth chapter covers the Nixon administration's preparations for SALT during 1969. And the final chapter--the longest at 106 pages--covers the negotiations from their opening in Helsinki in November 1969 until the signing of the agreement at the Moscow Summit in May 1972. Newhouse includes short pen portraits of the leading personalities on the American side: Henry Kissinger, Richard Nixon, Melvin Laird, and Gerry Smith. Much shorter than the later histories of arms control negotiations by Strobe Talbot. This is a good companion to the book S,A,L.T. edited by Mason Wilrich and John Rhinelander.

Great book cataloging the most important arms control agreement of the last century. Captures the complexity and drama of the negotiations between Nixson/Kissenger and the Soviet leadership. Excellent and reliable history
