The Coming of the Third World War: A Review Essay
Kenneth W. Thompson critically reviews General Sir John Hackett's novel, The Third World War. Though a fictional account of the origins and outbreak in 1985 of a nuclear World War III, the book is based on projections from current military assessments. According to Thompson, the book's weakness in foreign-policy analysis results from its overestimation of military factors to the neglect of the intangibles of politics and diplomacy and from its failure to perceive revolutionary nationalist forces.
