Curbing the spread of nuclear weapons

Ian Bellany

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Fully detailed but accessible and accurate introduction to the technical aspects of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons for the specialist and non-specialist alike
  • Balanced and timely presentation of theoretical discussion and historical narrative, both as regards the nature of international security and the bargains implicit in the nuclear non-proliferation and parallel treaties
  • Unusually full discussion of the phenomenon of nuclear free zones, with particular emphasis on the zone covering Latin America
  • Comparable zones now cover all of the Southern Hemisphere
  • Frank appraisal of the functioning of the international atomic energy's safeguards system, which is too infrequently brought out into the open
