On-Site Inspection in Theory and Practice: A Primer on Modern Arms Control Regimes


Rueckert provides the first comprehensive treatment of the on-site inspection regimes included in modern arms control agreements. He looks at the core concepts of the on-site inspection approach and blends analysis of treaty provisions with a discussion of how they work in practice. The in-depth discussion covers all aspects of on-site inspection: its evolution, how various types of inspection and monitoring work, and how inspection regimes are implemented. Rueckert concludes with a discussion of the costs and benefits.
