Verifying Nuclear Disarmament, Hardback Book

Description

Fifty years into the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT) regime, the risks of nuclear war, terrorism, and the threat of further proliferation remain.

A lack of significant progress towards disarmament will cast doubt upon the viability of the NPT.

By recognizing that certain fissile materials are essential to every nuclear weapon and that controlling their usage provides the foundation for international efforts to limit their spread, this book presents a comprehensive framework for nuclear disarmament. Based upon phased reductions, Shea provides a mechanism for the disposal of weapon-origin fissile material and controls on peaceful nuclear activities and non-explosive military uses.

He explores the technological means for monitoring and verification, the legal arrangements required to provide an enduring foundation, and a financial structure which will enable progress.

This book will be invaluable to professional organizations, arms control NGOs, government officials, scientists, and politicians.

It will also appeal to academics and postgraduate researchers working on security studies, disarmament diplomacy and the politics and science of verification.
