"Mike Glitman was present at the creation of the INF Treaty and played a key role in shepherding the treaty through the congressional process. The job was well done and he provides here a 'how-to' guide for the successful completion of any important treaty." - George P. Shultz, Stanford University
'Ambassador Mike Glittman is the hero of the first agreement in history to eliminate nuclear weapons. No one is better placed to recount how the Treaty on Intermediate Range Nuclear Weapons was negotiated, signed and implemented, or to draw the lessons that agreement can teach us about how to cope with the resurgent threat of nuclear proliferation." - Ambassador Roger G. Harrison, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Defense and Arms Control in the Reagan Administration
"No negotiator, American or Soviet, was so profoundly involved in the Intermediate Range Nuclear Missile (Euromissile) issue from start to finish as was Mike Glitman. From the time the Soviets deployed thei mid-ranged nuclear arsenal, to the time our side got our deterring forces designed, tested, built and deployed, Mike was fully involved and in the middle of things. Then he led the U.S. in the final years of working out the Treaty that verifiably eliminated from the face of the earth this entire category of fearsome machines. This is his expert account of how this major Cold War diplomatic success was achieved." - Ambassador Stephen Ledogar, Chief Negotiator for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty
"Ambassador Glitman played a central role in US INF policy and negotiations during the last decade of the Cold War. His record provides an invaluable account of the dramatic and pivotal developments in Washington, NATO, and Geneva, culminating in the unprecedented achievement of the INF Treaty in 1987." - Ambassador John Woodworth, Deputy Negotiator of the INF Treaty
