Presents a new way of addressing the urgent problem of avoiding nuclear war, incorporating what the editors call the Owls' point of view: that a major nuclear war would probably arise not from calculation but from mistakes made by machines, people, or organizations. Explored here are five paths toward nuclear conflict, and how changes in forces, technology, and political life affect the way events might travel down each path. Includes an Index.
