Abstract:  This is a collection of essays based on the proceedings of an international conference on nuclear war held at the University of British Columbia in October, 1984. It is an authoritative discussion of Canada's role in the arms race, and contains the thinking of some of the most eminent scholars in the world: British, American, Russian, and Canadian.

Contents range from a discussion of Canadian nuclear arms policy to a discussion of the nuclear winter theory. Other issues presented are East-West relations as viewed from the Soviet Union, verifying arms control treaties, banning weapons in space, the effects of continual fear, the human costs of the arms race, and the Canadian role in shaping the future.
