Join us February 7 to explore how the U.S.-Russia relationship has for decades shaped the development and deployment of ballistic missile defenses. This discussion will feature Dr. James Cameron, whose new book The Double Game (2017) examines the complicated motivations and reservations of the American presidents who negotiated the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union.
