AUTHORJoseph, Robert G.
TITLECountering WMD: The Libyan Experience
PUBLISHERNational Institute Press

The author, a former senior official in the U.S. State Department, provides the first publicly available insider account of Libya’s decision in 2003 to give up its nuclear and chemical weapons programs as well as its missile delivery capability. Designed as a case study and intended to inform future cooperative disarmament ventures, the book addresses three questions: What caused Libya to abandon those weapons programs and delivery system? What are the major lessons learned from the Libyan experience? What impact has the experience had on the programs of other nations pursuing weapons of mass destruction (WMDs)? The engaging narrative is enhanced by the author's first-hand perspective, since he was directly involved in the negotiations.
