Plutonium and Highly Enriched Uranium, 1996 by David Albright

Book Description

Plutonium and highly enriched uranium (HEU) are the basic materials used in nuclear weapons. Plutonium also plays an important part in the generation of nuclear electricity. Knowing how much plutonium and HEU exist, where and in which form is vital for international security and nuclear commerce. Plutonium and Highly Enriched Uranium 1996 is a thorough revision of the World Inventory of Plutonium and Highly Enriched Uranium 1992. It provides a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of the amounts of plutonium and HEU in military and civilian programmes, in nuclear and non-nuclear weapon states, and in countries seeking to acquire nuclear weapons. The capabilities that exist for producing these materials around the world are examined in depth, as are the policy issues raised by them. Containing much new information, it is indispensable to all those concerned with the great contemporary issues in international nuclear relations: arms reductions in the nuclear weapon states, nuclear proliferation, nuclear smuggling, the roles of plutonium and enriched uranium in the nuclear fuel-cycle, and the disposition of surplus weapon material.

World Inventory of Plutonium and Highly Enriched Uranium, 1992 by David Albright World Inventory of Plutonium and Highly Enriched Uranium, 1992, Hardback (March 1993)

Production of HEU looks set to fall as a consequence of reduced military needs and because nearly all research reactors have been converted to use low-enriched uranium. This work should be of interest to those concerned with strategic studies, peace studies, and international relations.
