Summary
During the Cold War, the Soviet Union secretly plotted to create the "Dead Hand," a system designed to launch an automatic retaliatory nuclear strike on the United States. President Ronald Reagan, hoping to awe the Soviets into submission, pushed hard for the creation of space-based missile defenses. The first full account of how the arms race finally ended provides a look at the inner motives and secret decisions of each side
