Description

Setting their study in a broad international context, the authors present their account of the negotiations under the following thematic headings: the Atomic Energy Commission of the United Nations; the Commission for Conventional Armaments; the Disarmament Commission; talks on the Arctic and the de-nuclearization of Central Europe during the late 1950s and the early 1960s; the Ten-Nation Committee on Disarmament; the Eighteen-Nation Committee on Disarmament; the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons; the negotiations on chemical and biological weapons, banning nuclear tests, and the prevention of an arms race in outer space; mutual and balanced force reductions; the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe; and the Stockholm negotiations at the Conference on Disarmament in Europe. The authors refer to the major bilateral talks between the United States and the former Soviet Union wherever these negotiations have a bearing on the issues in which Canada was involved. The English edition of A Diplomacy of Hope, a work originally published in French, was prepared by Derek Ellington.
