Tritium is the neglected material in controlling the spread and further development of nuclear weapons. It is used by all nuclear weapons states to increase the explosive yield of atomic bombs and at the same time to miniaturize them. However, this radioactive material has not yet been put under appropriate international control comparable to the nuclear safeguards applied for plutonium and uranium. International Control of Tritium for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament provides a unique resource on all aspects regarding the military use of tritium. It explains how a carefully designed tritium control will affect the non-proliferation of tritium and slow the nuclear arms race.
