Sponsored by the Natural Resources Defense Council and written by experts on nuclear weapons, this volume provides a detailed view of the production of nuclear warheads in the United States from 1945 to the late 1980s. An introductory chapter gives a historical overview of the weapons complex, followed by chapters that detail the then current (1986) complex, nuclear materials, warhead acquistion policy, and nuclear materials production technologies and processes. Appendices contain information on contractors performing nuclear weapons work, known U.S. nuclear tests, and inventories of tritium and highly enriched uranium for warheads.
