Partipants / Peformers

Moderated by Coit Blacker of the Center for International Security and Arms Control.

Scope and Contents note

Stephen Band of the British Embassy, and John P. Holdren, Professor of Energy and Resources, Berkeley, debate opposing views concerning the installation of Pershing IIs and Cruise missiles in Europe, the anticipated upsetting of the arms balance, the reduced possibility of arms control and the increased possibility of splitting NATO. Fellow panelist Hilmar Linnenkamp of the West German Defense Ministry and the Institute for East-West Security Studies points out the dramatic changes that have occured in Europe over the last 15 years and predicts that the most decisive factor in the debate will not be numbers of missiles nor nuclear strategies but the political "blood pressure" of Europe and the world. A question-and-answer period follows.
