    Strategic Defense Initiative (Star Wars) Ronald Reagan was the 40th American President who served in office from January 20, to January 20, One of the important events during his presidency was the Strategic Defense Initiative (Star Wars). The Strategic Defense Initiative has evolved into a massively funded research and development effort with profound implications not only for weapons technology but also for East-West relations. In this book, preeminent figures from the policymaking and defense communities address critical aspects of the program, offering widely divergent points.

    It was the Strategic Defense Initiative, also derisively known as “Star Wars”: the notional orbital laser missile shield to protect us against the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union. The U Author: Kevin Bankston. Aug 12,  · One milestone was Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative proposal, a technological challenge that could not be met by a Soviet economy already buckling under Author: George Will.

    Abstract. Examining the implications for the Western alliance, this volume seeks to evaluate SDI as a means of preventing nuclear war. Of paramount significance to Western security is the Soviet military reaction to the Strategic Defense Initiative and the European interpretation of that reaction. But the administration retained the term Strategic Defense Initiative, and the nickname Star Wars -- which President Reagan distinctly dislikes -- persisted. The SDI is hard to comprehend for a more basic reason: It does not yet exist in the form of concrete weapons systems.
