SYNOPSIS: AN ACCLAIMED PROPOSAL TO PREVENT POLITICAL MISUNDERSTANDING FROM BECOMING DEVASTATING WAR. Today's efforts to prevent nuclear war are focused mainly on arms and arms control, but William Ury, head of Harvard's Nuclear Negotiation Project, points out that there is an urgent need for something more-"crisis control." This commonsense approach to preventing unintentional nuclear war focuses on the human factor-on preventing blunders, panic, miscalculation and breakdowns in communication born of extraordinary threats and pressure for instant reaction. In clear, nontechnical language, Ury sets out a plan for jointly run U.S. -Soviet crisis control centers, staffed round-the-clock by experts in Moscow and Washington, D.C., who would monitor and defuse potential nuclear flashpoints worldwide. Here is an encouraging and feasible safeguard against the greatest danger of our time. William L. Ury is associate director of the Avoiding Nuclear War Project at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, where he coordinates an exchange between American and Soviet scholars on nuclear crisis prevention and management. An internationally known specialist in negotiation and mediation, he also directs the Nuclear Negotiation Project at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. Co-author of the bestselling Getting to Yes, which has appeared in fifteen languages, he has given strategy seminars to many of America's leading corporations as well as to the Pentagon, the State Department, and the US START negotiators in Geneva. Dr. Ury received his B.A. from Yale and his Ph.D. in social anthropology from Harvard.
