Abstract
Nuclear freeze proposals have been put forward as a way of dealing with the arms competition between the Soviet Union and the United States. These proposals have taken a variety of forms: some advocate a comprehensive freeze on the development, testing, and deployment of all nuclear weapons and delivery systems; others advocate a selective freeze, primarily regarding those weapons which are seen to be destabilizing. This paper considers the advantages and disadvantages of these proposals from a strategic perspective, examining the implications for security, strategic stability, and arms control.
