This book is a collection of 12 essays evaluating the advantages and viability of global nuclear disarmament. The authors of the book propose that, by their very nature, the existence of nuclear weapons continues to pose a significant threat to world security even as nuclear stockpiles and the likelihood of their intended use have significantly diminished with the Cold War’s end. Most of the essays focus on the practical measures necessary to make nuclear disarmament a feasible goal, with significant emphasis placed upon methods of verification and creation of an international oversight infrastructure. The book targets readers that are fairly knowledgeable in nuclear proliferation and international affairs.
