It is true that the two key treaties – the 2010 New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) and the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty – are still in force. However, their future is not assured. The 2010 New START (also known as the Prague Treaty) was an important achievement in preventing the collapse of arms control.

In this special section, Arms Control Today presents some highlights from that conference. He finishes by posing several outstanding questions about Soviet and Cuban intentions during the crisis. For many years, I considered the Cuban missile crisis to be the best-managed foreign policy crisis of the last half-century. I still believe that President Kennedy’s actions during decisive moments of the crisis helped to prevent a nuclear war. But I now conclude that, however astutely the crisis may have been managed, by the end of those extraordinary 13 days-October 16-October 28, 1962-luck also played a significant role in the avoidance of nuclear war by a hair’s breadth.
