Strategic Deterrence Policy in the USA and Russia: Divergence in Policy Paradigms
Political Analysis and Public Policy
In the paper proposed to your attention, the problem of "polarization" in political paradigms is considered, as an example of deterrence theory. Which can be perceived in a range from the dogma of nuclear deterrence (sometimes even the theology of containment is used) to a whole class of prognostic models that can effectively predict the behavior of the counterparty and develop economic mechanisms to counter "undesirable behavior." Why in one case there is a qualitative transition, and in another there? And for what reason the problem itself may not be obvious or banal depending on the position of the observer?
