This book postulates the extent of South Africa’s nuclear weapons capabilities and intentions, six years before F. W. de Klerk’s international acknowledgement of a small nuclear arsenal. The author, J. D. L. Moore, initially describes the construction of a fission bomb and the international non-proliferation regime. He then focuses on South Africa: its place on the international stage, and its history of uranium mining. Moore describes the development of South Africa’s nuclear arsenal and discusses both its weapons capabilities and nuclear intentions. He concludes with policy recommendations for addressing South Africa, in particular efforts to have South Africa sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The book includes an appendix on uranium enrichment technologies.
