Abstract

During the last decade, the balance of military power in the world has been a near monopoly of nuclear destructibility held by two nations, the United States and the Soviet Union. Now that this world order has been challenged by the nuclear weapons development program of the People's Republic of China it is no longer possible to describe the world armaments situation as a "bi-polar balance of terror." There may be little bipolarity or little "balance" if China succeeds to develop her nuclear contingency to a high degree.
