International Law and the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction
Daniel H. Joyner
Reviews and Awards
"This book is both important and timely. In it, the author leads the reader meticulously through some of the most intricate and urgent problems of national security, addressing the historical origins of our contemporary security problems and the most dangerous and provocative present threats to stability. Intended principally for lawyers (and providing a comprehensive, thoroughly documented analysis of the principal international and domestic legal sources and texts), the work also merits a broader audience, for it parses non-proliferation and counter-proliferation policy with striking clarity, offering fresh insights and proposing novel solutions. It deserves a place on any informed citizen's bookshelf. David A. Koplow, Georgetown Law"
"There is no doubt that Mr Joyner's book is highly relevant for all interested in the field of international law and security...Mr. Joyner's book is clear, well structered and does not avoid the hard questions facing the actors of the security community including the challenges facing non-proliferation law today." - Vincent Roobaert, Nato Legal Gazette
"Scrupulously researched, the book will be of great interest not only to academics and practitioners, but could also be recommended for a postgraduate course...not only a brilliant critique of non-proliferation law but also a proactive proposal of reforms and solutions to existing problems" - Marco Roscino, International and Comparative Law Quarterly Roscino, International and Comparative Law Quarterly
