Baruch Plan for International Control of Atomic Energy
In June 1946, Bernard Baruch presented to the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission (UNAEC) a proposal for the international control and regulation of atomic energy. This collection documents the Soviet Union's response to the Baruch Plan. It shows that Molotov and Stalin paid careful attention to the position the Soviet Union was taking at the United Nations on atomic weapons and arms reduction, even as they did not necessarily believe that an agreement was even possible or desirable.
