First the author debunks what he calls the myths of peace, chimeras such as disarmament, peace-through-trade, personal friendships between leaders, and world government schemes. President Nixon says that such policies-pursued by themselves-have never averted war, and that we court disaster by pretending that they will now. Then he describes the key that can unlock the door to peace: "hard-headed détente," a pragmatic mixture of détente and deterrence that encompasses the full range of political and economic relations between east and West.
