The second part outlines an ambitious plan to prevent terrorists from ever detonating a nuclear weapon in the United States. The author details events associated with the disappearance or loss of nuclear materials and weapons worldwide, as well as current efforts to control and inventory those dangerous items. An appendix contains answers to frequently asked questions about nuclear terrorism.
