His latest book is Better Safe than Sorry, The Ironies of Living with the Bomb (Stanford University Press, 2009).
Krepon named his top ten books on nuclear weapons and arms control for Foreign Policy. One book on his list:
Bernard Brodie, Strategy in the Missile Age (1959).Read about another book on Krepon's list.
Brodie moved to the RAND Corporation, where he wrote this work seeking to counter the prevailing winds of nuclear policy on which Kissinger had set sail. Brodie's background as a naval historian provided an excellent vantage point to assess nuclear matters. Brodie resisted enthusiasms on almost every page. This book continues to offer rewards. For example, he warned against preventive war which required "an extraordinary, indeed almost boundless, degree of conviction and resolution on the part of the President."
