Very limited printing. Printed for the family and friends of William A. M. Burden III. Includes tributes by Arnold Wolfers and Tom Braden. Mr. Burden came from distinguished lineage; after earning an M.B.A. from Harvard, he served as a correspondent for the New York Times at the Presidential Nomination Convention in Chicago in 1952, and later worked as a reporter for The Washington Post and subsequently at the Johns Hopkins University Washington Center for Foreign Policy Research. He apparently committed suicide; Arnold Wolfers refers to "a sense of our own inadequacy, if not of guilt, for having failed to help him find another solution to his problem and for not having understood the character, depth and urgency of his problem. " Includes what appears to be an appreciation by Charles Marshall and two unpublished pieces by Burden.

Hadley outlines the prerequisites to nuclear control, such as making the deterrent more secure and providing an effective United States response to minor aggressions. He then goes on to the necessary moves to improve stability: agreement between ourselves and the Russians on what to do if a nuclear weapon explodes through human or mechanical error, control of weapons in outer space, prohibition of radar jamming, and so on. After analyzing various schemes that might endanger or cripple us, he ends by taking a detailed look at the type of basic, controlled arms limitation that make sense and hold the promise of a livable world for the future.
