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
