This is the second of two draft volumes on the history of strategic air and ballistic missile defense from 1945 to 1972. It covers the 19551972 portion of the larger period, and is organized into five interrelated and progressively more detailed chapters. Chapter I provides a comparison of U.S. and Soviet strategies, Chapters II and III deal with U.S. strategy and Soviet strategy, while Chapters IV and V cover U.S. systems and Soviet systems. The Executive Summary is drawn directly from, and highlights critical judgments of, these five chapters. It outlines the substance of the much larger body of primary evidence contained in the separate books in this draft volume which was gathered to address the reasons underlying policy formulation and decision making for strategic defense and the relationship between the superpowers within that highly complex security policy arena. Results of research concerning factors influencing attitudes of policy/deci- sion makers at critical times appear in Chapters II and III. The Executive Summary has three major groupings: one, to reflect the contextual setting of decision-making, circa 1955; the second, to highlight strategic air defense policy comparisons and contrasts, 19551972; and a third, to present judgments and conclusions about the results of the play of factors and perceptions which molded air defense decisions during these years.
