TITLENorth Korea and the Bomb: A Case Study in Nonproliferation
PUBLISHERSt. Martin’s Press
CITYNew York, NY

This book is a comprehensive case study of nuclear politics on the Korean Peninsula until the signing of the Agreed Framework in 1994. The book traces possible motivations for North Korea to have a nuclear program after the Korean War. It also examines in depth the crisis in the early 1990s. The author explores lessons that can be learned from efforts by the United States to try to prevent North Korea from acquiring nuclear weapons. The concluding chapter provides a possible strategy to achieve nonproliferation; that strategy calls for the current nuclear powers to reduce their own arsenals, while preventing non-nuclear powers from acquiring nuclear weapons.
