This book seeks to analyze some of the major obstacles to the global pursuit of nuclear disarmament. Drawing on the work of several authors, the main chapters discuss the varying perspectives of many nations on that issue, all of which fall into three general approaches: the states (United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, and Kazakhstan) whose policies tend to favor total nuclear disarmament, nations (Russia, France, China, Japan, Brazil, Egypt, and Vietnam) whose policies may be problematic with regard to total disarmament, and countries (India, Israel, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran, Syria, and Burma) who either openly or secretly hinder progress toward nuclear disarmament. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of the political, state-level factors that are both motivating and stalling today’s disarmament efforts. It closes with a discussion of some proposals for overcoming the obstacles to those efforts.
