TOP REVIEWS FROM RUSSIA AND NUCLEAR ARMS CONTROL
A great course that covers the basics of about sixty years worth of treaties. If you care about the future of humanity, and your interested in International Relations, this class is a must.
Good course. The tests, especially in the early weeks, are difficult because they mention topics and concepts that you will only learn about later. Make sure to do the recommending reading.
Clear and concise presentation of the Russian view of one of the most fundamental subjects in contemporary international relations. Thank you so much!
The course was very interesting and useful. I would recommend to make it up-to-date with the INF Treaty since the US withdrawn from it.
