This book is a collection of essays that address the proliferation of weapons from the successor states of the former Soviet Union (FSU), specifically Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Kazakstan (also spelled Kazakhstan). The essays discuss the current state of export controls, the prospects for better nonproliferation measures and cooperation, the situation in each of the specific countries, and the problems associated with the spread of weapons from those countries. With contributors from each of those states, including the Foreign Minister of Belarus, the book provides an inside view of the dangers of proliferation of weapons from the former Soviet Union. The book is a project of the Center for International Trade and Security of the University of Georgia and the Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
