Wofsy, professor emeritus of immunology at the Univ. of California at Berkeley, has collected essays and letters about the Cold War by 25 American scholars, scientists and journalists, including newspaper columnists Flora Lewis and Tom Wicker, historian Leon F. Litwack, scientist and Nobel laureate Hans Bethe. They discuss possible reasons for the recent escalation of the arms race and increased hostility between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. Some contributors assert that Reagan administration doctrinepredicated on U.S. intervention in regional conflicts and political struggles around the worldhinders arms control. Others discuss whether and how the Cold War can be peacefully terminated. Many agree that ending the arms race depends on U.S. and Soviet willingness ""to rethink deeply imbedded Cold War propositions.'' This book is an illuminating, educational and timely introduction to a deadly serious subject. (December)
