Description - How Nuclear Weapons Spread by Dr. Frank Barnaby

The production of the first nuclear fission chain reaction in 1942 ushered in a new era in history and science. With both detrimental and beneficial effects, the nuclear age had begun - an age which would have far-reaching effects on the lives of subsequent generations. In How Nuclear Weapons Sprea d , Frank Barnaby examines the implications of nuclear weapons, and considers the close relationship between peaceful and military nuclear programmes. The book looks in detail at the nuclear programmes of third world countries which have or could soon have the bomb, such as Israel, Pakistan and India, as well as those which are thought to be developing their nuclear capabilities: such as Iran and North Korea. Even more alarming is the threat that terrorists might acquire nuclear weapons. Frank Barnaby assesses the reality of this risk, and considers methods of checking the spread of these weapons. The book also contains detailed descriptions of the components needed for nuclear-fission and thermonuclear weapons, and discusses the need to test these weapons, as well as the difficulties of disarming and disposing of nuclear materials. How Nuclear Weapons Spread will be of great interest to students of International Politics, International Relations and Strategy Studies.
