Pirmais vāks
William Lambers, 2004 - 95 lappuses
President Eisenhower once stated, the concept of atomic war is too horrible for man to endure and to practice, and he must find some way out of it. In The Road to Peace read about President Eisenhower and President Kennedy's pursuit of a nuclear test ban treaty, a first step in nuclear arms control with the Soviet Union. A lesser-known arms control measure is also discussed in the book, how the Soviet Union and the United States actually agreed to ban nuclear weapons from at least one part of the globe in 1959. Also read how a diplomat from Mexico led the struggle to create a nuclear weapons free zone in Latin America in the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Road to Peace includes the struggles between America and Britain over the Great Lakes and the Oregon territory. Read about diplomatic initiatives after World War I when the great hope of mankind was an end to warfare. Also, there is a concluding section on the INF and Open Skies treaties.

1. lappuse - Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be that good policy does not equally enjoin it ? It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and, at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence.
