In the summer of 1962, as readers of my Autobiography know, I wrote a short book called The Rhetoric of Deterrence, growing out of my struggles in the nuclear disarmament movement. I was unable to get it published [Harvard thought it was too political -- Harper and Row thought it was too technical], and for the past forty-nine years, it has languished on my shelf, joined eventually by two other books -- about my family -- that were by their nature not really publishable. This morning, I posted The Rhetoric of Deterrence on box.net. Perhaps, half a century later, someone will find it of interest.
