The RAND Corporation has recently added selections from the writings of Albert Wohlstetter to its well known RAND Classics site. Wohlstetter "was a mathematical logician and senior staff member at RAND in the 1950s and 1960s.... His studies led to the 'second-strike' and 'Fail-Safe' concepts for deterring nuclear war. These and other methods reduced the probability of accidental war." At present, 24 selections are available, ranging from 1952 to 1970. More are forthcoming. In addition to Wohlstetter's writings, RAND Classics contains eleven of Paul Baran et al's twelve volume On Distributed Communications (1968), RAND's A Million Random Digits with 100,000 Normal Deviates (1955), and Toward an Ethics and Etiquette for Electronic Mail (1985), by Norman Z. Shapiro and Robert H. Anderson.
