Deterrence and Nuclear Proliferation in the Twenty-First Century


This edited collection offers a prognosis about the role of nuclear weapons and nuclear arms control in future U.S. defense and other international security policy. The proliferation of nuclear weapons is closely related to other security issues, including the spread of chemical and biological weapons and the availability of ballistic missiles to dissatisfied state actors. Formerly the weapons of choice that defined great power status, nuclear forces, after the end of the Cold War, may be the preferred weapons by which the weak checkmate the strong.
