Sam Nunn served in the Senate for four terms and helped lead far-reaching changes in security policy. As a member and then chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sam Nunn shaped crucial national security and defense issues at the height of the Cold War and through the collapse of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall era and the “new world order” that followed.
In this first full account of Nunn’s senatorial career, the author of Sam Nunn: Statesman of the Nuclear Age, Frank Leith Jones, reveals how Nunn helped win the Cold War, constructing the foundation for the defense and foreign policies that ended the Soviet threat.
