Non-Conventional-Weapons Proliferation in the Middle East: Tackling the Spread of Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological Capabilities

Synopsis

The 1991 Gulf war has highlighted the dangers of non-conventional weapons and ballistic missile proliferation in the Third World in general and in the Middle East in particular. But the dangers of non-conventional weapons proliferation are not confined to Iraq: both ballistic missiles and chemical weapons are widespread and a number of countries continue with biological weapons research. This book contains papers by leading world experts on all aspects of non-conventional weapons proliferation in the post-Gulf War period.
