This book deals, on the one hand, with the destructive potential of the `ultimate weapons` and, on the other, the way of dealing with the problems these weapons might pose to international peace and security. The book helps both generalists and specialists understand how the policies of nuclear-weapon states affect our lives. The book covers the period from 1945 to 2003 and examines essential parts that both political acts and actors must play before any negotiation process can begin, if the objective is to end proliferation and eventually bring about abolition of nuclear weapons. The book is concerned with that area of politics in which nations encountered nations since the advent of nuclear age and man`s consequent mastery of the powers of heaven and fires of hell snatched from nature`s gods and devils by modern fausts, whose new alchemy made mockery of the old motifs of politics and diplomacy. The book offers tools of analysis and prediction which will help the readers to not only easily comprehend contemporary factual details but will also help them to choose a method of objective interpretation and forecasting applicable to past times, current happenings and to the probable shape of things to come, at least in near future.
