    the scientific study of social, cultural, psychological, economic, and political forces that guide individuals in their actions. and the effects of the different policies can be systematically studied. the study of social arrangements to maintain peace and order within a given society.

    Book Description. The analytic literature has heretofore been silent about the issues inherent in the nuclear threat. As a groundbreaking exploration of new psychological terrain, Psychoanalysis and the Nuclear Threat will function as a source book for what, it is hoped, will be the continuing effort of analysts and other mental health professionals to explore and engage in-depth nuclear issues. "The effects of war" is too general a concept. You have to reduce it to measurable concepts such as depression, anxiety, inner rage, powerlesness, hopelesness,etc. and then measure those effects.

    There are three models of study that look into the psychology of war: biological, ecological and social-structural. Biological models examine the importance of the links between human and primate violence, as well as the acknowledged associations between success in war and success in reproduction. "Duck and cover" is a method of personal protection against the effects of a nuclear explosion. Ducking and covering is useful at conferring a degree of protection to personnel situated outside the radius of the nuclear fireball but still within sufficient range of the nuclear explosion that standing upright and uncovered is likely to cause serious injury or death.
