PUBLISHERStanford University Press
CITYStanford, CA

In this volume, contributors examine the effects on international relations and strategic policies of the expansion of global nuclear energy that occurred in the first decade of the 21st century (the "nuclear renaissance"). The first section of chapters addresses the drivers of the nuclear renaissance, providing a historical context. The second part contains discussions focusing on the effect of the nuclear renaissance on nuclear weapons production. The final set of chapters considers how the nuclear renaissance affected international crises and violent conflicts. The chapters integrate qualitative and quantitative research from case studies to show common relationships and behaviors among nations. The authors are political scientists from academic institutions and think tanks mainly based in the United States. The book is meant to aid scholars and policymakers in evaluating the risks and benefits of expanding development of nuclear power.
