TITLEUranium Enrichment and Nuclear Weapon Proliferation
PUBLISHERTaylor and Francis
CITYLondon, England

This book reviews uranium enrichment technology, explains how technological changes affected the problem of nuclear weapon proliferation, and discusses possible solutions. Uranium enrichment was once restricted to the few countries that could afford the technically complex gaseous diffusion plants and other facilities, but became affordable to other countries due to evolving technology. The book covers both the science and the technologies of uranium enrichment. It discusses the history of non-proliferation efforts, and presents a summary of enrichment capabilities, and supply and demand worldwide at the time it was written.
