A lawyer who spent 15 years as general counsel for the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, Thomas Graham Jr. recalls the government's fiery battles over in his memoir Disarmament Sketches: Three Decades of Arms Control and International Law. The SALT, the START, the ABM Graham had a role in them all, and his detailed descriptions of the skirmishes among presidents, cabinet secretaries and members of Congress through six White House administrations make for a comprehensive history of American arms control. Though its tone is probably too wonky for general readers, the book will be appreciated by historians and those interested in international law, and its observations will eventually trickle down.
