History for Anti Ballistic Missile Defense of US 1960s[69]

Once in mid 20th Century, questions were raised about defending the North American Continent and Homeland zone from potential and actual long range nuclear missile warfare strikes. By 1969, one such result was this publication. ABM, An Evaluation of the Decision to Deploy an Antiballistic Missile System. Publilshed here, this 'independent' report consists of a series of articles by scientists and scholars of the era, presenting materials and discussion of then proposed American ABM Defense. The introduction of this volume is by Sen. Edward Kennedy[D] Mass.
