about

This book examines the question: is the elimination of nuclear weapons feasible? Individual chapters address the major conceptual, technical, and economic issues in the design of a non-nuclear security regime. Other chapters explore more specialized issues as they relate to the feasibilityof the elimination of nuclear weapons: elite perceptions and the decision-making process, verification, nuclear proliferation, fissile materials and warheads, alliances and regional hegemonies, and deterrence. The concluding chapter addresses those issues relating to the maintenance of anon-nuclear security regime.

Editorial Reviews

`The thirteen well-published authors of these eleven chapters have much to teach us ... There is no other single book with this one's focus and depth, combining arms control, stragety, and international politics while exploring the process utopia methodology. It will be useful to bothprofessionals and students, whether realists or disarmers, and may help us all think more clearly about the true shape and content of the "nuclear question."'Perspectives on Political Science
