Crucial technologies affecting nuclear weapon proliferation and their potential ramifications for the nuclear non-proliferation regimes asa whole are examined and potential policy options which could ameliorate or eliminate the resulting dangers are analysed and assessed. Developments and problems raised by the Iraqi and North Korean nuclear programmes receive special attention. In particular, recent efforts in strengthening export control regulations on nuclear and dual-use technology and equipment and in improving nuclear safeguards are described and their impactanalysed. Of lasting relevance in the non-proliferation context, this book is of particular relevance in the light of the indefinite extension of the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Editorial Reviews

`... is a highly-illuminating account of how the spread of crucial technologies relevant for the prosecution of fissile materials could be used by nations or groups of individuals to make nuclear weapons ... Written in a reserved and understated style, this book is highly readable, clear,comprehensive, and it is an important examination of the concrete steps that are now being taken to prevent further nuclear proliferation. A balanced combination of physics and international relations, this should appeal to anyone who is interested in preventing the spread of nuclear weapons'Nadine J. Gurr, European Security Vol.6 No.2 1997
