Nuclear Terrorism : A Threat Assessment for the 21st Century Hardback
by G. Cameron
Will the twenty-first century see terrorist fingers on the nuclear trigger?
How likely is it terrorists will obtain weapons of mass destruction?
What factors would determine their decision to use them?
Gavin Cameron assesses the causes for, and implications of, the escalating lethality of terrorism.
The growing opportunities for nuclear proliferation, primarily arising from the collapse of the Soviet Union are explained.
The book concludes that the organisational and psychological pressures within terrorist groups and the changing nature of political violence combined with the heightened danger of nuclear micro-proliferation have made mass-destructive terrorism the greatest non-traditional threat to international security in the world today.
