I’m working on a political science writing question and need support to help me learn.
The international security literature does not provide a single view on the dangers posed by nuclear weapons. On the one hand, some analysts see nuclear weapons providing very effective deterrent capabilities and therefore reducing the probability of war. Some even believe that nuclear weapons are the key to understanding why the Cold War was peaceful. On the other hand, some analysts believe that nuclear proliferation brings great dangers and some see it as the greatest danger facing the world. Using historical cases and evidence from class, discuss these perspectives and offer your verdict.
